And it’s a celebration – we made it all the way to the top! Yes, on the day 6 months after our accident, we made it all the way. In spite of protesting body parts, hurting ankles, sore knees, and torn asses, we pushed ourselves (and our bikes) up that mountain all the way to … Continue reading 6 months later

The avalanche broke about 100 m above us and caught and partly buried … Continue reading Not so much kicking, but alive – the Kittelfjäll avalanche 2014
