Hi!

For the first time I got to compete in Germany as the 3rd stop of our Big Air World Cup was held in Mönchengladbach. The organization was on top and they had created a really great jump (it was the 2nd best city big air jump that I’ve tried so far)!

I was comfy on the jump and after qualifying in the morning I got to be be in the start field in front of a big engaging crowd during the finals the same night.

This summer I got to go on the craziest trip of my life. I got the question from GoPro to join in on an adventure to Peru where we were going to try sand skiing?!?

The footy below shows it all and I promise you it’s worth a watch. The video at the top is the original piece and the 2nd video below is the behind the scenes where you get some more details!

Thanks GoPro, Jesper, Will and Alex for making this trip possible!

WC Big Air Milan | 3rd place

2016-11-13 21:34 | 2306 Visningar | Kommentera

Hi!

Time flies when you’re having fun and the season is now in full roll. After a really nice autumn spent on different glaciers in Europe (Saas-Fee n’ Stubai) it was time for this season’s second world cup in Big Air. This time we headed to Milan, Italy where they had built a jump in the middle of the art area Expo 2015 and the jump was located at the foot of the artsy tree Albero Dela Vita!

As I’ve experienced earlier it’s not as easy to do your tricks on a scaffolding jump as on a normal park jump. This time I had some struggle to get my cork 7’s down and ready. So I switched from my original plan and focused on my switch riding.

During the quali’s I didn’t ski so well. On my first run I messed up my landing on a switch 7 and crashed. In my 2nd and last run I managed to land a switch 7 with a tacky rev safety and it barley got me in to finals landing me on 6th place (top six moved in to finals), phew, close call!

In the finals there had gathered a nice crowd and it always gets you hyped up! I managed to stomp a nice first run, a switch 720 dub japan, and it scored well, 88 points. For my 2nd run I tried to get my cork 7 tail, but as I mentioned I had struggled with it the whole time in Milan and I bailed this time as well. It now all came down to my third and final run. I made it a safe one and threw a right side 540 safety. It was not my best one to date, but it gave me 69 points and it was enough to give me third place! :)

Big ups to Lisa who really skied like a boss this night! And also to Mathilde that made an awesome debut at her first World Cup in Big Air!

Results:
1. Lisa Zimmermann (GER), 90.6 + 90.6 = 181.2
2. Mathilde Gremaud (SUI), 75.4 + 81.8 = 157.2
3. Emma Dahlström (SWE), 88.0 + 69.0 = 157.0

POV from my first run, switch 7 dub jap!

New edit | Coline n’ Emma in Saas-Fee

Hey!

A few weeks back I went on a weeklong trip to Saas-Fee with the french girl Coline Ballet-Baz! We spend 7 days there and we had 6 incredible good days on snow. We came home with a bunch of shots so I made a little edit out of it, enjoy :)

Was the first time I was filming with the new GoPro HERO5, and wow, the new built in stabilization is truly great! We only used a camera and a 3-way handle while filming this, and I think it turned out pretty damn smooth – what do you think?

FIS WC Big Air | El Colorado, Chile

2016-09-08 13:48 | 3012 Visningar | 1 kommentar

Hey!

The first comp of the season is now done! We came to Chile with the Swedish Team two days before the practice started and we got to feel the snow just a little before it was time to hit the Big Air jump. As we were so few girls our qualification got cancelled and we went straight to finals = we got an extra day of practice (which it turned out I really needed). I felt to rusty the first few days back on snow, hadn’t really been hitting any big jumps since April and it took quite a few jumps before I started to get the feeling back.

During the comp it was the two best tricks out of three jumps that counted. I started with doing a cork 720 tail and got 76.20. On my 2nd run I did a switch 540 high safety that I felt very pleased with, and it scored great, 84.80. On my final and 3rd run I redid my cork 720 tail, didn’t get it perfect but increased my score just a little, 79.00. This gave me a total score of 163.80, and it was enough to give me the win, woohoo!

Incredibly happy to’ve been able to start the season like this! As I mentioned it’s always hard for me to get the feeling back, but this comp made me get back faster than ever before. Maybe this is the way to do it? Hi snow, hi competition.

Results:
1. Emma Dahlström – 163.80
2. Giulia Tanno – 156.20
3. Melani Kraizel – 141.20

Roadtrip through the Norwegian Fjords

2016-09-01 10:55 | 3150 Visningar | 1 kommentar

Hi!

If you’ve read my previous posts you know that I recently finished renovating a van in to a rolling home together with Elias. Luckily we both got two weeks of in August and we decided to do a roadtrip through the Norwegian Fjords.

And WOW – we definitely didn’t get disappointed. Norway is so incredible stunning! Behind every corner you turn there is an even bigger mountain, an even bluer ocean or some other breathtaking scenery that you simply can’t get enough of!  I can’t believe I’ve never been traveling there before, as it’s only a couple of hours drive from where I live in Sweden. I hope we can go back there with Buster soon :)

Our route, see the map below:
-Katterjåkk (SWE)
-Å, Lofoten
-Bodö
-Nesna, Helgeland
-Trondheim
-Trollstigen
-Hoddevika
-Lom
