Last day in Engelberg

Was really lucky and went up with Daniel Furberg today. We got some unexpected pow. Happy for that!

Now I’m on the airport, and will hopefully fly home soon. Seems like the weather in Stockholm ain’t too good, so I guess we’ll see…

Can you spot Daniel? It wasn't super deep, but soft and fast. I actually prefer that...

 

Bye bye Laub... See you in a week hopefully!

 

Always miss the mountains when I'm not there. But gonna be good to get home to Höjden too. It's gonna be a lot of work to get the next Alpinkultur ready, but hope to get some time off for climbing and chilling and eating too.

 

Gonna carry this turn with me home for the coming week though. Some comfort in the computer jungle... Thanks for the photo Daniel.

Engelberg shred

Got back from the Blizzard/Tecnica sales meeting now. Had some good days there! Sweet to be back again though. Been shredding with The Demon (Erik Sunnerheim) and Daniel Furberg a couple of days now. Good times, even though it’s now that epic conditions any longer.

Just had dinner with Kang Poles dudes and team at Ski Lodge Engelberg. If you haven’t seen their poles, check them out. Really sweet!

Blizzard Tecnica meeting in Sölden

I’m at the Blizzard and Tecnica sales meeting in Sölden at the moment. Good times! Full on, but fun. Really stoked on the new products too, and that feels very good. Here are some shots:

Another epic day

Today was another epic day, but short, and sweet! Had three good runs with Oskar EnanderDaniel Furberg, Petter Widén, Matilda Rapaport and Piers Solomon. Then at 11 I went down and drove to the Tecnica / Blizzard sales meeting. Meetings aren’t as fun as shredding, but I was really stoked on seeing all the new next level gear here. Gonna ski all tomorrow. WOHO!

Shredding pow with a world champion

Another, even more, ridiculously good day today. Was shredding with good people today again. Mostly with Freeride World Tour champion (2012, and 2:nd 2013) Reine Barkered. Good times! Hooked up with Petter Widén, Daniel Furberg and the Unfiltered guys for the last runs. Epic day! Here are some shots:

Back on Snow

So, this is the return of my blog, after a long time with just small phone updates. Hello!

Today I had my first real day skiing this season. And… I think it’s the best first day ever. I remember last year was pretty epic too, but this was better…

Was shredding with my buddy and awesome boarder Daniel Furberg (who started a small snowboard brand, make sure to check out Furberg Snowboards), FWT dude Wille Lindberg and the backflip master Olof Larsson. Good times! But my shins hurts oh so bad now… Always a week of adapting before they’re back on track.

Some shots. Will start shooting more.

Boot fitting

Spent some time at Alpingaraget today, getting my boots done. It’s a pair of R9.3 130, and they’re pretty tight (93mm), so I need to customize them a bit. Pretty stoked to get help from Mattis in the shop. He actually won the boot fitting world champs, so… I’m in safe hands. Everything looked good though!

This is one of the boots I use. For powder and touring I use the Cochise 130 Pro, which is the best touring boot out there. Used that all last year. But for slopes and such, it’s nice to use a proper race boot like this.

A new cover

Bought the big Sunday paper today. SvD is Sweden’s second biggest newspaper, and I’m pretty goddamn stoked that Christoffer Sjöström’s shot of me, Sverre Liliequist and journalist Kina Zeidler ended up on the cover. Buy it and read Kina’s text about the Glacier Express and enjoy Christoffer’s photos from the trip.

Mega danke guys!

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!
