what's your feeling about freeski coming to the O.G ? I think and hope its a good thing. People need to know whats new, and how impressive skiing really are. Slopestyle is seek. But I hope they will see how fun it is, not only the competition but the good vibe. Rides have a job to to that.
What other things or activities do you like ? Downhill biking, soccer, and playing guitar.
What makes you feel really proud ? When I have skied a perfect line!
What do you think about freeskiing future? I think it will get a little bigger, but not too much, but the future is to combine ski tricks in too the mountains. I think competitions will get more mountain raiding with tricks.
what advices would you give to kids who want to be pro ? Have fun on skis, ski every day, when you feel you are good, so get to some competitions, and make some movie clips. Moust of all, have fun on the skis, dont forget that!!!
What's the best spot ? Hmm, I cant really say, I think Lemonsjøen.
What's your favourite trick ? 360
What are your plans for this season ? Be better on my skis, ski bigger lines, lurn more tricks in the backcountry, do some freeride competitions, and make movie clips, foto.! We have a big plan in february, if that works it will be very good.
Where do you thnik you'll be in 5 years ? I think I will still skiing, but which level, I dont know, but hope its a good one, the younger kids are allways pushing, but I hope I will be a skier who younger kids can look up to.
A last word ? Go big or go home:) Have fun!
