I can’t believe that another ski season has passed. I could not be more happy about my season. Coming back from a bad knee injury and I was able to ski almost everyday through out the winter. That is my biggest achievement this year. My hard work paid of. I’m really happy about my season. I had a plan before coming in to this winter and I achieved it almost. I filmed a lot more this season, had some really good weeks with Mattias Fredriksson and that usually pay’s of I won 1 contest witc was really big for me after I hurt my knee. The World Cups did not go as planned but I guess everything can’t be 100 % after an injury
Thanks to all my sponsors, Pepsi, Völkl, Marker, Shred, Slytech, Peak Performance, Oakley, Leki, Kombi, Dalbello, New Era
Family and fiends….

First of allt I went to Colorado right after new year’s to start skiing big jumps again. It felt great jumping again and my knee was holding up pretty good
We had our first World Cup in Copper 2 weeks ago. It was pretty exciting to compete in my first WC ever. I had a really mellow run since I only had 4 days of jumping before the contest. It went quite alright during practice, with a pretty decent run I guess. Though being the first contest after my injury, I was a little bit nervous, and I ended up falling both of my runs. Anyway, still happy that I could compete again, after 8 months of rehab! I stayed in Colorado for another week after the contest to ski as much as I could, before I had to leave for a Big Air contest in Gerlos, Austria.
I got to the event with no expectations at all. I was just looking forward to compete in a big air again. It all ended up great; skiing pretty well and won the contest I couldn’t believe it! After all the hard work I put in this summer and fall, I was on top of the podium again.
Bad picture. But I don’t care

I’ve got two new sponsors after new year’s wich I’m supper happy about.
Peak Performance and Shred. Two of my favorite brands in the ski industri so I couldn’t be more excited.
That’s not a Shred helmet… I’ve got my new helmet when I arrived in Austria. Here it is:
Of course it’s a Pepsi logo on it aswell
Flying back to Austria tomorrow to compete in a pretty cool slopestyle event. Can’t wait
I just wanted to let everyone know how my knee is doing and what I’m up to.
I went to my doctor about a month ago andI got the very good news that my knee was almost a 100 %. Which I’m super happy with. Or I think I was more happy with that my hard work had paid of.
Yesterday when Paddy, Fabio and I went to Laax to jump the trampolines and I hurt my knee I was not allowed to jump because I didn’t go to a class before, that you have to do. So I was really bored and did some flips on the floor instad. When I did one backflip I rotated too slow and landed on my knee’s. It hurt a little bit but I did not think any more about it.
We went for dinner and played bowling that night (Paddy won twice) and my knee started to hurt really really bad. I could barely sleep last night and I really felt that I needed to see a doctor the next morning (today). Paddy drove me to a private clinic in Imst and the doctors looked at the knee and I had MRI and everything. After a while the doctors said that my lower ACL was broken (the one in the back PCL?)… I don’t really now the name in english
So I’m flying to Stockholm tomorrow morning to see my doctor and see what he says about rehabbing and stuff. I’m hoping for the best but I don’t think it’s to bad.
The trampolines I couldn’t jump on

My bowling skills wasn’t very good that night hehe
Crans-Montana was sick. The weather wasn’t really that good but we got some sun for a couple of hours and got some shoots, I hope Right now I’m at Fabios place, some wear in Austrian and the plan is to chill for two days and hopefully go skiing on wensday or thursday. Toady were driving t0 LAAX to go to the trampolines. Haven’t jumped on a trampoline in a while, So I’m excited.

Of to Laax,
We went up to the mountain with big expectations today. The weather looked really good but as soon as we got the mountain we realized that the weather was terrible. Well, it got way better in the afternoon and we skied a bunch around the ski area. It was some fresh pow so I really had a good time
Me and Paddy left Courmayeur this afternoon to Verbier. Were going to stay here over the night before we go to Crans-Montana in the morning. Our friend Nico Vuignier have built a sick jump there so were going there over the weekend. I hope the jump is sick because I have some new tricks in mind
On the road to Verbier
Verbier, I remember flying to the top in the middle when I was here 10 years ago with Free Radicals
We haven’t skied for two days now. The weather gods are not on our side
As soon as the weather is crap it’s not much you can do because you have to stay at the same place until the weather get’s better. So you get the shoots that you want. So it’s alot of time in front of your computer
I really hope we can shoot the thing we built tomorrow, but you never now. Come on SUN!
The weather cleared up and we had a heli booked. It was pretty cool to be in a helicopter again without morfin in my body
The snow wasn’t really what we expected it was really wind packed. But we found a really cool feature that we built and hopefully the weather is good for tomorrow so we can shoot it.
Bene in his new harness
waiting for the heli to arrive
We are really enjoying our selfs here in Courmayeur. We live in a super sweet chalet and we have a hugh spa and stuff, so I can’t really complain
The weather wasn’t the best today so we decided to take a day of. Me, Paddy and Andrea (the man) checked out the town. It’s a really cool town but no people at all. The season is done here I think. The weather look’s good for tomorrow so we are taking the heli to see our options around the mountain. Hopefully we find something awesome
