Had a couple of sweet days in Engelberg now. We got some snow, and I got a visit, and we did some skiing. Good times!
The worst season ever in Engelberg. But now it’s getting there… Shredding with Skottarn, Peter Nilsson and Johan Axelsson today. Good times!
This episode is about the search for the new shitfuck episode. We tried as hard as we could, but…
Check it out HERE.
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:

First time here in Courmayeur for me. Pretty stoked on the place! The snow is not super easy to work with, but in some places it’s still cold.
Food and people are amazing though! Such nice place. And the surroundings are just… on a different level, kind of. It’s more hostile, but mostly humbling…
Don’t know if I should write that much. Look at the pictures instead, and click them for captions if you’re reading at Freeride.se.
But well… I’ve been in Engelberg a while now, and the conditions are pretty horrible. But it’s fun!
New toys for stoke are first of all a Panasonic GH3. Pretty amazing little thing… I normally shoot with the LX7, cause it fits in my pocket, but have been trying the GH3 some now. Really cool cam. For shooting, but even better for filming.
Also stoked on… all new gear! Ha ha. Fun with the Blizzard Cochise, cause they’re so solid in these conditions. Ah… I’ll write more later. Here are some pics:
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…
Today was another epic day, but short, and sweet! Had three good runs with Oskar Enander, Daniel 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!
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.
