Kristoffer Turdell from Gällivare is the newly-crowned champion of Freeride World Tour, the World championship of Extreme skiing. His scene may be all the mountains in the world, but it’s still a run from last season he remembers most vividly. On Duolbagorni in Swedish Lapland.
At the end of November, the sun barely makes it above the horizon at Kebnekaise mountain station. You have to get up on top of the mountain to enjoy the first and last rays of sunshine. Even then they don’t offer much warmth. That’s why it was such a nice surprise when filmmaker Alexander Rydén posted a great film with freeride skier Kristoffer Turdell on Duolbagorni (or Tuolpagorni) by Kebnekaise. A ski-climbing video featuring bone-dry November powder.
– Yeah, when it is 30 degrees below the powder is undeniably dry, says Kristoffer Turdell, laughing.
