Keb Classic

I did my first proper ski mountaineering race this spring with my friend Josef. The race, Keb Classic (http://kebclassic.se/vinter/) was a two day race, covering about 2500 vertical meters per day. We were blessed with great conditions, with sunshine and powder snow.

We managed a pretty good race, finishing 9th overall, although I was the slower in our little team and especially had a tough first day.

The official video from the race can be seen here: https://vimeo.com/167609908

The day after the race finished we did a short ski tour to experience the Kebnekaise massif in a more relaxed way. We had another day of sunshine and powder making it an awesome end to a not so awesome ski season.

Here are some photos from our last day of ski touring:
