120131 Home after a dramatic phototrip in Switzerland with Linus Archibald, Johan Carlborg, Arvid Agrenius and Jesper Molin. First thing that happends in Swiss is that I loose all my money, VISA card, driving license etc.. The wallet probably got stolen on the train to Disentis where we where heading. However I managed to get home safe after getting a "letter of confirmation" from the local police station wich actually did work like some kind of ID at the airport security check (I was travelling without regular passport). Interesting since I could have told them I was pretty much anyone...
In Disentis we managed to get some nice bangers and have a good laugh at my old friend Flodas hotel and pub "Nangijala". The place to be for every Scandinavian in Disentis... and probably all the other skiers aswell I quess. Below and above is a sneakpeak from our work in Disentis this time! All Photos (C) to Jesper Molin Photography !

120110 In the beginning of January I hooked up with a couple of friends for a skiweek in Kittelfjall. Freezing cold but great skiing and lots of fun chutes and features on the mountain. Kittelfjall is a little bit like Swedens "Klondike" and so far Skistar haven�t been able to control this resort. Great destination if you want to check out from the big city life.
120105 This image was in last galley of the magazine BRANT.

11220 Christmas in Tandadalen! The Swedish mountains in Dalarna might not be know as the most deadly but after a nice snowfall and almost zero people on the mountain we actually managed to find some really nice chutes and fresh powder around the area of "Vaggen". Merry Christmas everybody!
111215 New photo in next issue of BRANT magazine, I will post a picture from the mag soon so stay tuned!
111122 Even though winter may seem faraway in Sweden the season is just about to kick of! Hopefully I will be able to go and catch up with my mates Hasse Mute, Patrik Leidstedt, Jana Lindqvist and Linus Archibald during the classic Ski test in Salen later this week!

I guess).

DUZ Image - Check out my friend David Zappas Armchair-Project by clicking this link . One image is taken from our photo trip to Arolla Ski resort earlier this season. This project is still under progress and will later on be showned in several exhibitions, great work!
Powder in Engelberg! 100405 The past few days heavy snowfall has led to great conditions here in Engelberg and today was no exception - approximately 40 cm of fresh powder and clear sky during the afternoon. Together with my friend Linus Archibald and parts of the Ski Lodge Posse we had a great day on the mountain, perfect after being home in Sweden for one week!
- As some of you might now I work with youth problems back home...this is not one of those guys - its just my friend Linus...
REPUBLIC 100330 New skis on the block! The Swedish brand "Republic" releases this fall a serie of Jamaica inspired freeride skis. Below the Montego 105 and Ocho 96 showed at ISPO earlier this year. Besides skis Republic also produces protective gear such as helmets and backprotection. This will be my new skisponsor from now on!

Brand new skis from REPUBLIC presented at ISPO 2010
Back in Engelberg! 100315 After two weeks on the road we are finally back in Engelberg, before Jesper Molin and Johan Carlborg flew home to Sweden we had one day with great weather and snow here in Engelberg. During the last session of the day I unfortunatly managed to hit rocks in the landing while jumping the ice in Steinberg. My skis broke but I am alright, I believe this confimrs that it s better to trie land on your feets rather than the hip or back!
Just before fridays last jump at Steinberg, landing looked great but right under the snow - just rocks...
Linus Archibald above the top of Jochpass... just another day in paradise!
Murren update... This is truly a varied skiing area - together with our local hero and mountain guide Fritz we have skied everything from big and untoched lines from the top of Schilthorn to some sick forest in the area of Winteregg!
The view from the top of Schilthorn - 2970 m.a.s.l.
Jumping the roof from Schilthorn, taken trough the lens of Johan Carlborgs Iphone!
Linus Archibald is a bit confused after finding a hole at the end of this sweet pillow line...
Murren 100309 Yesterday night we drove of from Disentis and after some minor incidents on the road we reached our next stop - Murren - around midnight. (We didn t quite realize that our skimobile below was drinking gasoline like an elephant...) Anyway - this place is pretty unique, the village is situated on a plateau close to a 800 meter high and vertical wall and it is only accesses by cable car. From our hotel Alpenruhe we can also see the dramatic north face of Eiger and the 4150 metre high Jungfrau summit, pretty stunning!
Linus refueling our beloved Caravelle... again and again...
FAT CAN From now I will start riding with Fatcan ski poles, check out their solid and stylish collection at www.fatcan.com!
FAT CAN at ISPO 2010
Better days! 100308 Since the weather has been pretty crappy during our visit here in Disentis we where all stoked to wake up to clear blue skies and some fresh snow! Below you can see some nice chutes from the upper part of the mountain.
Apathy in Disentis... 100304 After a few days of mellow weather, dliffjumps with hard landings and innumerable lefturns in front of the flash the fog has finally struck Disentis. Together with my fellow friends Linus Archibald and Jesper Molin behind the camera we are now spending most of our time at the local bar Nangijala trying to keep the mood up with imported Super Bock, at the moment 2 for 1 so there is still hope!
The magnificant view from Disentis alpine restaurant.
While reading an article in the all amercian Powder Magazine - about jaded young guns - I found myself up in the corner skiing on rocks... quite a surprise! The photo is taken by David Zappa.

Nissan Mystic Experience 2010 My broken ribs are getting better and the last days days I have been out skiing here in Engelberg, everything is tracked out but I am super stoked to be riding again!

Recovering in Engelberg... 100204 Since I am suffering from a minor injury at the moment I am spending most of the time in the workshop at all freeriders headquarter; The Okay Shop. Last night Johan Johnsson came up with some quite original ideas in ski development...
BRANT 100129 I got a nice photo published in the new issue of brant magazine, check it out! I will upload a image from the mag later... Photo by Fredrik Schenholm, www.schenholm.se.
Arolla 100129 Driving to Arolla is nothing for the faint hearted, the road is winding and narrow and goes up above 2000 m.a.s.l. Our hotel is located close to the skilifts and the view from the room is stunning. Unfortunatly our first day here in Arolla was just a big white out so we did not get much done. Wednesday was better, we had bluebird almost the whole day and even if it was almost four weeks since last snowfall we actually managed to find some untracked snow.

It is not always easy to go where you wanna go...
Grand Hotel Kurhaus in Arolla

Photoshoot with Jesper Molin and Doctor Visits in Engelberg
100124 Last week have been full of freeriding and shooting together with Jesper Molin www.jespermolin.se. Unfortunatly I managed to cut my chin twice when jumping some cliffs so know I dont look to pretty... Anyway, here are some photos from the last days.
Me, Jana and Viktor on the very top of Titlis waiting for the mystic alpenglow to come...
Waiting to drop in...
On the left is a classic cliff wich unforutnatly led to another cut in my chin, to the right my friend Larssa doing his best to take care of the after effects. What would I do without him?
On the left I am waiting to drop in at Graustock and to the right it is the alpenglow burning the last hour of shooting in Engstlenalp.

Powder and ski photography!
091215 Snow has fallen in Engelberg, the last days have been filled with a couple photoshoots together with Fredrik Schenholm (www.schenholm.com) and Oscar Hubinette, some tranciever practice and even a floorball tournament in Andermatt with old friends. Unfortunately the vikings from Team Sweden lost in the qualification against the local freestylers after some truly questionable calls... ;)
Before skiing down Jochpass after an evening photoshoot, beautiful like Nangijala! Fredrik and Oscar H packing up for another spot...

Drop by their homepage and read about the most dedicated travel organization I have ever met!
Climbing and coffe, a classic combo!
091120 Yesterday I met up with my old friend Anders Wilson at Eskilstuna Klatterklubb. He is one of Swedens top climbers so I was a little nervous for having a hard time but it all ended in lots of coffe and some really nice lines both at the boulder and the big wall.
While I have some issues with a purple boulder line Anders is more like running around in a horizontal mode. Wich only confirms my theories that Anders recently must have mutated into Spider man... He recently climbed a 8b called "Breaking the law", heavy!
Problem solved... Eskilstuna klatterklubb at a regular Thursday

But even though there was some bad weather coming in the race organizers managed to complete 3 out of 4 runs on Nordalsfjall. Unfortunatlfy I fell in the final after jumping a big cliff. After this I will head home and wait for the summer to kickoff!

On the road...
090224 Last two weeks I have been travelling most of the time, after Fieberbrunn I went for a photoshoot in Disentis together with Jesper Molin, Patrik Leidstedt, Kristoffer Frenkel and parts of the Secondhandscrew. I seriously considered purchasing a snorkel while I was jumping from tree to tree in the forest. There was shitlouds of snow and from what I have seen we got some nice bangers there!
After that me and my friends from Engelberg headed for Winter Mystic Experience in Monterosa, the next Freeride world qualifer. Unfortunately I crashed in to a tree so now I am back in Engelberg, riding powder with my friends and chilling a few days.

The website will also be updated soon.

Free radicals and Carlsberg...
081110 Last friday night me and my old buddies Ncklas and Jenny went to Munchenbryggeriet to watch the new FR movie, on our way we stop at SOS sportswear store and got a few free bears (Jenny might have taken a few to many though she where sleeping during the movie). Anyway.. thank you Majsan! Really nice to watch some good skiing and catch up with some old friends from past seasons...
