Glacier Express day 1 – St Moritz

Just started a mission together with Sverre LiliequistChristoffer Sjöström and Kina Zeidler. We’re doing the Glacier Express for the Swedish newspaper SvD and some other magazines. Had our first day shooting yesterday, and it went about as good as it could with the conditions we have here. It’s good at some places, but we had to search for them…

Today it’s overcast, and no new snow, so we’re gonna shoot some diamonds and other St Moritz stuff. It’s kind of fun to see this town. So different from… me, and what I normally do. But, you can always learn something from it. Here are some pics from yesterday. If you’re reading at Freeride.se, you need to click the pictures to see the captions.

Oh! And I must nog forget to say BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Matilda Rapaport, who I’m living together with in Engelberg. She got a wildcard to Verbier Extreme, and managed to win the competition. So awesome! Happy for her, but not surprised.

Powder and shooting

Engelberg had a couple of really good days now. It’s been deep powder, and I’ve been shooting some together with Mattias Fredriksson. It’s been me, Oskar Scherlin (Who I haven’t met before. Nice guy!), Mattias girlfriend Elle, and Sebastian Garhammer. Good crew! Here are a couple of photos. More coming. If you’re reading at Freeride.se, you need to click photos for captions.

Hospital and stitches

Finished the guide work for Ski Unlimited in Crystal Mountain a few days ago, and went back here to Nelson and Whitewater to shoot with Sweetgrass for a couple of more days. Unfortunately I ended up in the hospital today…

The last two days in Crystal Mountain were pretty awesome. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bunch of people that stoked to ski! And that just makes me happy. Some had freeride skis, some had slope skis, and some had basic rental skis. But they all charged! I look at IT consultants in a new way now, that’s for sure.

Had one day of really fun filming. We did a “special shoot”. Fall 2013 you’ll see what that means. Yesterday we did a couple of sunset cliffs. Super fun! Even though I landed on rocks. They were steep rocks, so it was ok.

Today I went out early morning with photo wizard Adam Clark, who came here yesterday. Super stoked to get to shoot with him! But unfortunately just did it for 20 minutes or so. Then I hit some kind of anti-transition on a small cliff, and punched my knee to my chin, and had to go and get some stitches. Seven I think it looks like…

Trying

We’re trying pretty hard to get stuff done here in Nelson. It’s been difficult, since it’s a long time since the last snowfall. But we’re shooting stuff you don’t want to shoot when conditions are epic, so it’s good times anyway! Trying to be creative.

The rest of the Sweetgrass crew, Nick Waggoner and Michael Brown, just came back from the Sentry Lodge, where they have been filming Kye Petersen, Eric Hjorleifson, and Zack Giffin. Dream team, and dream snow. Saw some of the footage, and… Next level footage.

Interview with Freeride.se

Did a small interview with freeride.se yesterday. They just posted it, HERE. It’s a “5 favorites” interview, about which five books meant most to me through my days. Read it, and read those books.
