From Kantberget - Vuojnestjåhkå 21 hours 46,8 km 4650 ascent meters. First climb 1978 and we think it's 9 persons now that have success. The most respected high alpine traverse in Sweden. My second try on it after 10 years of dreaming. Stora Sarektraversen is comparing with 4 laps on Syltraversen! Probably I'm not going to ski/climb it again. 1 meal, 5 dubble sandwiches, 10 bars, 4 gels and 3,5 liters Vitargo, 0 blister and 1 frostbite. On radio 15:30 at P4 Jämtland today. #skimo #Sarek #Sarektjåhkkå #storasarektraversen #mountaineering #bestofskantz #liveskirepeat #haganski #hagansverige #earnyourturns #topptur #skitouring

Weekend - 2017-02-19 18:00

Efter en långtur i onsdags i Bunnerfjällen blev det en lugnare helg hemma. Vädret är ju inte direkt inspirerande just nu. + grader och hård vind. Ser dock ut som det snöat en del i västra fjällen denna helg. Vi hoppas på pudermars och en lång vår med skidsäsong och full vinter hela juni!!!! Då kommer vi glömma dessa plusgrader. 

Hagan skidor förresten. Fick ju ny sponsor i vinter av Hagan Ski. Sjukt roligt och genuint skidmärke. Känns som man blivit barn igen, så kul är det att skida Hagan skidor. De bästa med dessa är att de är mer träkänsla (mer trä i konstruktionen) än många andra skidmärken som försöker göra lätta skidor. Vilket ger skidkänsla och skidglädje utöver det vansliga. De roligaste modellerna som jag kör på är.

Hagan Ywai Boost 137-97-113 mm friåkningsskida med 1360 gram i 178cm längd. En Dynafit Superlite bindning a 175 gram på det. Så har man roligt på all typ av topptur. Långturer, aggresiva turer, skön pudersnö, och what ever...

Hagan Ultra 112-7699 mm lätt Speed touring skida. Vikt 970 gram i 170 cm lång. Brant åk = ja tack. Lång turer = ja tack. Platt turer i skog och fjäll = ja tack. Piståkning = ja tack. Träning i slalombacken = ja tack. Normala toppturer = ja tack och dessutom har man roligt på all snö!!

Vilken dröm.

Kommer en bild från i onsdags också

bachelor party - 2017-01-09 07:25

My own bachelor party was last saturday. We go to Sälen from Östersund over a day tour. 4,5 hours of traveleing one way and then we ski touring all the flat hills and ski the steepest line. Skis Kestle -86, bindings Alpine Trackers, ski boots some 35 years old and used at least 20 years so they was completely out of function. The flex was at the bottom direct so was quite tough to ski with...

I´m back on skiis. - 2016-02-19 20:30

I´m back on skiis after all truble. First all the fighting with my broken shoulder and than in januari/februari I get the pneumonia so rest rest and rest.....

But now I warm up with some short ski tours and toady I have a nice day our there with skiing a couloir in Lunndörren/Dörrpiken with Henrik Westling and Denny Calvo.


Still sick and something in the alps - 2016-01-28 21:00

I´m still fighting with my health. But when I was away for the fair ISPO in Germany I try to ski little bit. First dream was to ski 2 whole days and 2 evenings after the fair. So goal was to 5-10 summit for this travel and start my training for this winter. It start with 48 hours in the bed with sickness in my body. Then the fair and first on Tuesday evening I try to move myself little bit. I climb and ski Wendelstein 1838m.


A nice nightski with headlamps and meet two really nice Germans on the way to up. It´s also funny climb/walk the last bit to the top.

That evening I feel more sick. And my last day free for skiing I lay in the bed until 13:00 and wondering if I was sick or not and then I in slow tempo climb and ski a Seekarlspitze 2261m and that one was a cosy one I reach in perfect sunset. And even if you are not 100% healthy it´s sometimes so nice to move your body little bit after some time of illness.

So I come home far away from the goal but more rest and soon I hope I can train for real again and do the natural thing you want to do in wintertimes. SKI

ISPO and Germany - 2016-01-22 21:10

I´m still waiting for the real traning and to get ready for the skiseason 15-16. After I come home from Netherlands I get sick again with a cold and miss two weeks more of important training. So status is not good for the long distance touring. My sholder start to get better of all muscle exercise I did in NL. So now I going to Germany and the sport fair ISPO and hope for two days skiing in the alps. Than we still hope I´m ready for Kallsjön around in end of February or in March.

Se the short movie how the plan is to do that ski tour.

I have walk up to Netherlands highest point Vaalserberg 322,7m and it look like a hill.....

Rehab time - 2015-12-19 18:30

I still fighting the rahab fight to get ready for the skiseason. My shoulder I break this summer had make my muscle very weak and I have problem to keep the shoulder in right position. Especially when I ski and do the poling.

So I most traning the muscle of my shoulder and back so I can ski the long distance ski touring I want to do.


I going to Netherlands for 3 weeks for spend time with my fiancee Esther over christmas and train my rehab and do some mountainbike. 

The two big goals for this winter skiing is:
