Finally some pow!

Sweet day in Courmayeur today! We hooked up with friend and mountain guide Mikke Eriksson and skied the Helbronner. Good times!

KC Deane arrived yesterday too, after winning Skiers Cup together with his team mates from North America. Good guy!

And the Shitfuck edit is now on youtube, so EVERYBODY can embed it now. Sweet huh? Here:

Freeride World Tour photo blog

Came back from the Freeride World Tour in Fieberbrunn a few days ago. Since then, I’ve been skiing and skinning some, but have too many photos! So we start with the ones from Fieberbrunn…

The best thing about being there, was that I got to meet Marja. I haven’t seen her in a long time, and that sucks. But it was so good to see her, and see her shred again! She looked solid, even if it was a long time since she skied.

It was also good to meet the Swedes on the tour, and the people from The North Face. Saw some new faces, and had some interesting discussions. Good times! The tour has gone so big now, and… Yeah, it’s a big event! Nice to see.

When I came back, I finally mounted my 193 Blizzard Gunsmoke. I put the new Dynafit Beast on them. Just started trying both of them, but both feels really good so far! Big thanks to Linus Archibald at OKAY shop in Engelberg who helped me with the mounting. Guess I could do it myself, but… Linus might do it better. Ha ha.

Stockholm and bootfitting

Have been in Stockholm since friday now. Nice to be at home (one of them), hanging out with Bea and meeting other kind of friends…

Went straight from the airport to Alpingaraget on friday, cause I wanted to customize my ski boots a bit. I’m really happy with my boots, but wanted to try a foam liner, cause I’ve never tried that before. Just… curious. Anyway, really happy to be able to get help from them, cause they are really, really good at what they do. The best, actually. My feet aren’t too much trouble, but for people who have problem with their boots – just go to Alpingaraget. Mattis or Mange will fix your problem. 100 % guarantee.

Then I came home to two boxes in the mail. It was a pair of the new Dynafit Beast bindings, that I’m really stoked to try! (Thanks Desporter!) And a new sole for my Tecnica boots, so that they work with the new binding. Tecnica got a really smooth system for that. It’s just to change the sole, and voilá! I kick ass boot that works with the tech binding system. This is the first year I have a boot that also got a walk mode (Cochise 130 PRO), I was really skeptical before i tried, but after hiking a few times… woah, so much nicer. So, stoked to try them, with the Beast too.

When I’m at it, talking about new things I like a lot, I might as well give a BIG shout out for a thing I haven’t cared too much about before, but found out that is the key to not freezing your feet off – KASK Thrillers Socks. If you’re saying “Well, it’s just a ski sock.” I double dare you to try them. They’re compression socks, with merino wool, and they basically fixed all my freezing problems. The compression thing makes the blood flow more, even if it sounds strange. But… It’s just really good. Try it!

Well… Here are some photos. Click to read the captions and see them in bigger size.
