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.

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.

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!
