Ride in Peace - Erik Lundström (1977-2011)

When you've got a couple hundred hard charging freeride friends you better be prepared for, or at least have considered the possibility of someone riding their last line early in their life.  Fredrik "Frippe" Ericsson did it on K2 last year, and this week our friend and fellow Hyggedal-citizen Erik Lundström passed away. Shred in peace dudes, see you in powder heaven some day. I'm just planning to take a couple more rides here first, and taking it a little bit more easy as I've got a couple of kids and a woman to hang out with for about 40 years or something more.

From Lofoten with Love

Niko and Vegard straight outta Tromsø Loooped crew shredited this Shred Televison shredisode after hanging out with us in Lofoten a couple weeks ago:

"The last weeks of march we headed to the Lofoten Islands and hooked up with the Norrøna crew for an epic adventure in the land of stockfish, fjords, waffles, eagles, old fishermen and love. Among ice, wind and clouds we found pow and even a bit of sun.

Thanks for watching!

Corruption in action

The world is full of it, it's everywhere, not only in poor african countries but probably closer to you than you think. Corruption is what I'm talking about! Now you even have to watch out for it in your local ski magazine:

I entered in a Swiss Tourism marketing stunt competition held through; "make your own creative and fun version of the swiss air add and win a free trip for two to Engelberg":

with this:

and even this complete advertising plan:

but then the results came and this one took away the price:

What tha hell is that? I'm probably missing something that's funny or something, but unless these dudes are a famous norwegian gay couple recently arrested for inapropriate conduct with animals, or something like that, then this comp is definitely rigged. The kuken i fjellet can't be beat by that crap in a fair comp?
