A little swim after skiing sounds about right to me…
Jib Academy world finals rolls on in Mammoth, California with slushy park, great skiers and sunny weather. I’m skiing hotlaps all day with Johan Niemi (the Swedish JIb-Ac winner) and Christian Nummedal (the Norwegian Winner). So much fun with no pressure, just skiing what ever you like. Kind of cool to see the different styles of skiing from the different countries ! There is so much to show you that it’s better off just post a bunch of pictures from the last two days here in California. Enjoy!
Norway vs Sweden. Hamre vs Johan.

Some of the skiers went to the skatepark, while me and Christian quietly sat down and watched them kill it. Skating is not my thing!
Last day skiing is tomorrow, and we love it! Make sure to check back in for more photos tomorrow!
Never thought I get to see Mammoth while I was an active skier. Well, guess I was wrong cause here we are, me and Christian Nummedal for the Salomon Jib Academy world finals!
Flew in from Trondheim last night with a small pitstop in London and L.A before Mammoth Lakes, and Mammoth Mountain. Hot and sunny, perfect springbreak!
When traveling for allmost 1,5 day straight with several flights, these little babies are a life-saver! No noise – pure relaxation!
My travel-companion for the week Christian Nummedal, who won the norwegian Salomon Jib Academy. I know how stoked I am for this trip, and I can only imagine his expectations.
Getting some warm sun in Los Angeles. Really needed after this crappy and rainy winter!
The west coast of the United States. L.A it is.
On our way to Mammoth.
Deboarded the q400 in Mammoth Lakes. In the middle of nowhere lies this airport that must have been the tinyest of them all. Warm and sunny weather made me think I had ended up in Vegas in stead of somwhere close to a ski-hill. Hmm..
But what do we have here… The all so famous Mammoth Mountain, California.
Just had dinner with all the Salomon-athletes and all the winners from Salomon Jib Academy in other countries. Should be an awesome week on the opposite side of the pond.
Stay tuned for more Cali-action..
Wow, I had such a great day at Storlien today. I though the season was over after our little springbrake, with a lot of work and school coming up, but I was wrong! Last night me and Marius decided we would give it a last try with the good weatherforecast for today. He had to be back at work just after lunch, so we didn’t have much time. Fortunately, Storlien brings short laps and minimal liftlines to the table, and we spent the time well. We shot a little mellow video for you guys, hope you like it, cause we had tons of fun!
Just got back online after a few hectic days to say the least. Long days and late nights with awesome people and good times. Finished 4th in Jacob Wester’s trickbag challenge after a bit windy and snowy day. Railjam with 7 tricks to the table, where of all tricks had to be different! Vincent Gagnier from Canada took the win with insane skiing, followed by Maximillian Smith and Simon Ericsson, both from Sweden. You can see all the action from the finals in this little video by Freeride.se
Tomorrow is the night of Jon Olsson Invitational, and it should be legendary. See you there!
