The worst season ever in Engelberg. But now it’s getting there… Shredding with Skottarn, Peter Nilsson and Johan Axelsson today. Good times!
Here’s a screenprint, and below I hope that the video will appear. Please share it if you like it. Cheers!

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.
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!
Had such a fun day with a good gangshred here in Engelberg. It was me, Per Jonsson, Edvard Berg, Wille Lindberg, Patrick Vuagnat, Peter Nilsson, Linus Archibald, Jesper Robertsson and some other people. Good times! Inspiring with a bunch of fun riders to shred with, and hopefully we’ll get some vision tomorrow so that we can continue!
I skied on the 196 Bodacious the last days, but went back to the 186 today. For this kind of skiing, that was better. Fun! Stable, but still short and more playful than the more kick ass 196.
Shredding and fishing?! Yep… I feel that I’ve been so lucky lately. Got to go to Alta for a meeting with Tecnica and Blizzard. Super nice to meet the guys over there, test some new skis, talk about the future, and just have a good time. Made some new friends, and got to ski with some truly amazing skiers. And I’m not only talking about the athletes, but all the guys at the meeting. Such good times!
Paid a visit to the Soulpole factory one night. Got to do our own poles! Awesome. Thanks Bryon!
Also got to ski a new prototype from Blizzard. Can’t say that much, but I’m stoked as HELL on that ski.
And to top a kind of perfect week off, I got to go fish the Green River together with some great fishermen. It was too good to be true almost. AMAZING place. So greatful… Thank you so much Mike and Brian for taking me with you! And Jed, Bart and Stefano too. Had a very, very good day.
So, here are a lot of pictures. If you’re reading at Freeride.se, you need to click the photos to read the captions, which you should.
Have been in Alta, Utah, for a couple of days now. Don’t know if it’s the greatest snow on earth at the moment, but yesterday was really fun! And we got some faceshots.
Haven’t been shooting that much, but here are a couple of photos from the last days. Pictures are not in order, don’t know why…
