Powder getaway, Ål Skiresort!

11 01 2011

Today I realized how lucky I am to be snowboarding for a lifestyle. I woke up when my family went off to work and school, had a quick breakfast and then I drove 10 minutes to my local resort, Svarteberg (Ål Skisenter). This is where I´ve spent my days as a younger kid riding powder and crazy runs in the woods.

The lift was not running, and I was trying to get out of the parking lot (which was a struggle because of all the snow). While driving away, I saw a couple of workers up in the cafe. I decided to ask them whats up.

I put on my boots with heated soles (That´s a winner on days like this), and brought my Nitro Rook board with me. Then they opened the lift only for me and this one lady, and we had the slopes all by ourselves the whole day. Svarteberg got one of the steepest slopes in Norway and I never get bored of powder-riding up here! Thanks a lot for letting me play today.

You don´t need to point this slope to do turns…

First day back on snow

10 01 2011

This weekend I went to Hemsedal. It snowed like crazy, and it was my first day back on snow since the injury. I was so happy to be cruising again. I even did a couple of melon grabs, without feeling any pain!

Yes, it was really cold!

Hung out with some friends from back home, checked in with Gowalla at “Skistua” and had the legendary quesedilla..

Got some nice garms from Nike 6.0 today, thanks a lot!

Thats whats up!

Anyone know a place I can stay in Breckenridge? Please, hit me up.

 





Working out in Oslo, X-games is coming up shortly!

7 01 2011

This week I´ve been in Oslo, working out and getting some help with my injury, the goal is a quicker than normal recovery! It feels a lot better now, I might actually go riding tomorrow!

Sitting at home  thinking about riding when you can´t, sucks. Can´t wait to get back, learn new tricks and ride X-Games! I just got the invite a week ago, and I jumped through the roof. That was probably the best gift of them all. Slopestyle and Big Air, it´s gonna be a lot of fun.

On norwegian television they just showed a couple of minutes with me and how I’m getting back from the injury, thanks Morten Røkeberg at NRK for a great show!

Hopefully I´ll be able to land this trick when I get back on snow? 😉





Fractured collarbone

Happy new year! I’ve been lazy for a month now and thought I should start blogging again. At Dew Tour I got injured and fractured my collarbone. So here I am, sitting at home doing nothing!
