There’s a lot of snow hitting the alps right now. Resulting in high avalanche danger. Want to share some of the knowledge I gained from the safety camp with @mmrapaporthargin and @istaeducation. The main goal with the education is to learn how to stay away from avalanches, here’s some things you can think of.———————————————————————————
Before you go skiing, talk to your friends about the goal for the day. How are you feeling? Tired? Small injuries? What kind of skiing are you interested in? How big are the group?

Continue and check conditions for the day. Weather? Visibility? Wind? Sun? Temperatures? Can the weather affect the snow-stability?

Before heading out, make sure that everyone has good and functioning equipment. Transceiver, probe, shovel, backpack with airbag, food, water and some extra clothes. Always tell someone where you’re are going. Don’t ski by yourself. Save the phone-number of the local ski patrol. Take care friends <3 All photos by: @antonenerlovphotography #inspirelikematilda

I’m born in January 1996 in the arctic city Kiruna, Sweden. My life on skis started at the age of 3 years at “Loussavaarabacken”. Alpine skiing has been my main focus during my skiing career until the season 16/17. This year has been spent down in the alps on my first freeride season. With new goals and dreams my main focus for this season was to compete on the FWQ-tour. Skiing is undoubtedly my biggest passion. Doesn’t matter if I ski in the piste, off-pist or touring in the backcountry. A day in the ski-boots is a good day!
