Yeasterday was a classic day ! blue skies and about 30-40 cms of fresh snow ! i decided to spend some time kiting as there was a little breeze. i can kite from A to B but i have always struggled a bit in deep snow, and unfortunlately i had a 2 hour struggle with the kite lines and bottomless snowpack. after crashing my kite in the head of an innocent bystander that got a little upset, i gave it up.. kind of bad cause it was probably one of the best kite days of the season so far ! went hiking with my Snowboard instead so it was all good in the end !

Powder Pumping !

Andreas in the deep of it !

Im Spending the weekend in the mountains and were having beautiful winter conditions here now. lots of fresh powder and cold temperatures ! we went to Haukeli today and had good riding in about a foot of powder. the visibility on the top face wasnt the best, but it was good and fun forest riding ! after a couple of hours one of the lifts were closed,and the queue at the bottom just got too long. went and hiked a face in knee deep powder instead. the snow was so deep and fluffy i had too straight line it to keep momentum. if these conditions continue i have to get a bigger and wider board !
