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.

Top jump!

Loving the California livin’

Better watch out for a edit in a few days. Got a few shots with the Contour + Camera.

Sunset park-shoot with everyone.

Tailgrab-bonanza.

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!

Mammoth, California baby!

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!

 L.A.X

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..
