Looong time no see

What happend since the last post back in March?!You must be tripping of excitement!

So people here comes the late turbo-update to sum it all up

APRIL: Gunnis was leading the Freeridecup but after a giving it all in the last competition she missed the line and face/buttplanted in the bottom of the wrong cliff. Anyway she ended up on an impressive 2nd overall, beating all of the Norwegian ladies! Here is one of the many articles about Gunnis

Then around in those days I went over to India for a while, trying to sort out the developerteam for the new weathersite storm.no.
India

 

Delhi was too close to Nepal for not flying over there so I had a little week in the Himalaya rivers. They were extremely low this time of year, thow. Should have been there in October they all say. Let the picture speak for itself
Nepal

MAY: I'm back in Bergen working my arse off but in exactly 10 days I'm off to join Elements Tour in British Columbia! Hopefully I'll get time to do some updates from that trip. Gunnis is in Bosnia competing in the world championships in rafting(!!) I'm excited to see the results very soon on vossraftingklubb.com
Bosnia

So long, hopefully live from BC!

Vossapowder surf

by Admin 22. February 2009 22:00

This week has been wet, wet, wet, but the rain still came as snow at the tops. That means lots of heavy, wet snow which is amazing to surf on if you have fat enough skiis or just a board :D Every ride I had at least 3 faceplants when the nose of my board got caught in the heavy snow and threw me violently down like a rag-doll Foot in mouth

Top touring in Hardager

by Admin 15. February 2009 21:34

If you drive a half hour south-east of voss you're by the Hardanger fjord. If you drive through the tunnel and another half hour back towards voss but outside the tunell and next to the fjord, you end up at a little farm called Tjoflot. Walk a couple of hours straight up and your'e standing at the top of the world looking over mile after mile of mountains and fjords. Here are some photos from the walk up and there are some more at Benjis website here.

Bergen by night

by Admin 5. February 2009 23:46

When I woke up this morning everything outside was glittering white!In the very city of Bergen :D I thought it would be madness to go to the office and work inside in conditions like these,but Eikedalen skicenter has the solution for us day-working-people: nightskiing. I had to dig out the car,loaded it with gear and after work i met up with some other sad day-working-people happy to finally be out in free air and we raced the 60km out to Eikedalen were the hill was bathing in velvet-snow. I can't describe the feeling of yahoooooing up there for hours after being stuck inside a full day. This is life..

1. juledagstur

by gunnis 25. December 2008 19:45

Ny dag nye moglegheiter.

Sidan det no er slutt på dei 1. joledagstider då det ikkje var lov til å gå utom hus, ringa til nokon eller gjera andre krumspring i stovo, nytta undertegna og Silje høve til å testa langrenns formen. Målet var Herresåsen og deretter finna nokon bakkar som gjekk oppover mot eit eller anna utkikks punkt. Slike rundløyper utan mål og meining er ikkje noko for oss... Det var med godt mot, julekake i sekken og toddy på termosen me la ut frå parkeingsplassen i Herresåsen. Medan dei andre på parkeingsplassen gnikka skia med voks og glider la Silje i veg med gammal påskeklister og eg med spinnglatte ski og feller i sekken. Så ein kan vel sei at me ikkje gjekk heilt i takt i starten. Silje var ikkje pittelitt kjent ein gong så eg forstod fort at her var det eg som var sti førar, sidan eg hadde gått på ski her då eg var liten. Men no var jo alt forandra med løyper og spor på kryss og tvers. Eg tenkte tilbake på ski minnene frå barndommen og føreslo beinevegen gjennom skogen på tvers av alle dei flotte løypene. Me bana oss veg gjennom skog og kratt og nådde stølane oppi dalen som eg hadde sett ut som ein flott plass for å eta jolekaker, drikka toddy og nyta den flotte utsikten mot Lønahorgi og Hondalsnuten.

Eg skulle eta svinasteik med familien kl. 16.00 ( og ikkje eitt sekund over..) så det var på tide å ta fatt på returen. Det var perfekt gjennomslags føre, men eg og Silje har alltid ei råd så me fann ut at om ein køyrde sikk sakk nedover så gjekk det fint. Dessuten er buskar og trer fine å ta fatt i når ein skal stoppa eller ein kan berre hiva seg ned i snøen.

Då me kom nedatt til Herresåsen møtte virvarret av løyper oss igjenn. Eg sikta meg inn på Hangurstoppen på andre sida av bygda, og då var det berre å beina på igjenn gjennom skogen. Eg og Silje var einige om at det var lurt, for om me skulle fylgja desse løypene ville me ikkje komma heimatt før det vart myrkt. For som silje sa så er det ikkje måneskin heller no..

Me kom fram i tide og eg skrensa inn til svinesteik i skisko og topplua to sekund på fira Innocent

Snowracing in voss resort

by Admin 14. December 2008 23:44

We've been looking forward to the grand opening of the voss mountain ever since last winter.The latest snowdump came on wednesday and the resort opened this weekend! It was so beautiful up there. The snow was glittering and the light magical. The sun is so low the few hours its up and it makes the day always looking like late night or early morning. This pic was taken around 11am..

Slettafjellet

After swishing around the whole day we met up with Eirik, TC, Hendri, Margis and Andy and took the last ride up the chairlift with snowracers. It was Gunnis birthday so we made a toast of grapesoda&vodka-mix at the top before we threw ourselves on the sleighs to race to the bottom. Thanks to Voss Resort for lending out sledges :D

Snowracing in Bavallen

After that we went straight to afterski on Bavallstunet and many hours later we found ourself in Pentagon dancing in the pianobar. Anorther perfect day in Voss.
