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…
