New, free online ski magazine

Did I mention that I’m also the editor in chief of a new online ski magazine? Well, I am. It’s called ALPINKULTUR, we just released the second issue, and I’m pretty goddamn stoked about what we did!

It’s in Swedish, but we have about 40 gallery pages with kick ass ski photography from Oskar Enander and Daniel Rönnbäck. It also includes Instabangers, news, gear, interviews with Jacob Wester and Marja Persson, and a sweet story about Japan with photography from photo wizard Mattias Fredriksson. Read it, share it, spread it in all possible ways!

ALPINKULTUR #2! Read it and share it! The cover is shot ny Daniel Rönnback. La Grave. Skier, Jacob Wester. Cheers!

Norway, Switzerland, Stockholm

Have been doing lots lately. Lots of biking (shootig with Fredrik Schenholm, Mattias Fredriksson, Daniel Rönnbäck, Oskar Enander and Hans Johansson), lots of computer work. No blogging though. Here are some photos, and a film about how my life is now:

Two covers

Had a sweet week publicity wise. First I got the cover of Swedish bike magazine Kadens. I was in Rörbäcksnäs with photographer Daniel Rönnbäck to do a story on the biking there. So, the story is in the magazine. Buy it and read it. And go to Rörbäcksnäs! It’s a cool place, with ridiculously good single tracks.

This morning I saw Oskar Enander poster a picture on Facebook. It was my second cover this week. Japanese BravoSki decided to run one of Oskar’s shots on their front page. Stoked for that! It’s from a run in Haines, AK. Fun run! I was, as you can see, sliding a lot. Ha ha.

Lately

First of all –  THE WINTER IS CLOSING IN! Just so you know… Check the picture below that Daniel Rönnbäck shot yesterday! It’s from Åre, Sweden.

 

Daniel Rönnbäck skied powder yesterday. It's closing in!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Apart from a gigantic motivation to ski, it’s mostly preparations now – going to the gym and making plans for the winter. We’re also refurnishing the apartment. Takes time…

Here are some photos from last month:

Car shoot

Had a car shoot with Daniel Rönnbäck the other day, on the way home from biking. Felt kind of weird. Ha ha. But I think he got some sweet pics! Below is my iPhone shot.

Pretty nice evening…

But first some biking.

Real work

Have been in Bynn since friday now. We’re changing roof on our cabin, and the old roof had to be removed before the carpenters could start. It was a dirty work… But good to fall asleep immediately when you go to bed.

Got some of my winter clothes, AND some biking clothes, from The North Face. So I’ve been just like a child on Christmas eve. Sweet.

Yesterday I was shooting biking with Daniel Rönnbäck in Sälen. Epic! Now I’m going up there again, for some fly fishing and more biking. Cheers!

Riks + iPhone

Just some iPhone shots from the last days… Captions tells the story.

20120509-190552.jpg
Me: Biking and stretching.
Photographer: Biceps.

20120509-190637.jpg
Alex Björk: Just looking dope.

20120509-190711.jpg
Don’t know why, but I like this pic. And I like my Helldorado.

20120509-190752.jpg
Adam.

The furniture here in Riks have been changed since last year. And right here, you can see that a genius have been involved!

20120509-190919.jpg
On my Instagram I wrote: “You think it’s b&w, but it’s just Riks.”

20120509-191016.jpg
The mother of all filtallrikar is a good start of the day!

20120509-191055.jpg
Passed by Gunde in his new caravan. It has a toilet!!! I had to sit pee to try it. Worked good!

20120509-191147.jpg
Jeppekool was there too. Stoked on Gunde’s pillow-shoes. Dope!

20120509-191241.jpg
Yesterday we went on a sled mission. We did some filming, and Adam and Nicke did The Airplane. No big success though…

20120509-191346.jpg
On the way home.

20120509-191418.jpg
Got new shoes! Feels almost like summer.

20120509-191455.jpg
This little fellow was outside our window at 05.15. He found our chicken. We let him have it.

20120509-191615.jpg
We thought we were on a safe distance from the cornice, but when Adam fell into this hole, we stayed some extra meters away…

20120509-191721.jpg
Went out with the heli today. Got a couple of runs, the this came in. Bummer.

20120509-191809.jpg
So me and Per-Gunde had a product meeting, comparing this years’ goggles with next years.

20120509-191904.jpg
Another product I’m pretty darn stoked on is the new The North Face ABS pack. Really good! Like a normal, awesome Patrol 24, but with a life insurance built into it.

20120509-192023.jpg
On the way home.

Even though the shitfuck came in before lunch, this is still how I’d sum up the day. Good times!

Epic day in Riksgränsen

Filming for JOB continues, and yesterday was really good. Me, Adam and Per did our best in front of the lens, and Nicke from Winter Project and Daniel Rönnbäck were shooting sharp. I say nothing more. Look at the photos and read the captions instead.

Riksgränsen gang shred

Had a couple of days here in Riksgränsen. So good to be here. It’s an atmosphere that is really hard to explain for someone who’s never been here. But it’s kind of… magic. I’m here filming with Winter Project for J.O.B. Which is a really cool project from… Ah, I’ll explain this later. Soon time for bed. But anyway, the weather the first two days here haven’t allowed much shooting, but it’s been really fun just shredding with Per Jonsson and the rest of the Riksgränsen crew. Today I also took a couple of runs with Björn Lindgren. He’s one of the most talented riders I know of. Everything he does looks so easy and steezy. I wish I could ride like him. Here are a couple of pics. Follow me on Instagram (Jonsbert), and you will find some more. Cheers!
