Merry Christmas & Spiritual meaning of freeriding

Merry Christmas and a good 2014 for all of you.

This is a part of my article in Snowboarder Mag from this month:

This picture means more to me than just an expression of joy.
The silence, beauty and at the same time the power and danger of the mountains with a blanket of virgin snow has also a spiritual meaning. While hiking and freeriding I am completely detached from everyday life.

Whether I am happy, angry, stressed or too much energy. When I come back from a day freeriding I feel relaxed and balanced.

Last days I’ve been chilling, and hiking. Today I froze my hands because I had forgotten my gloves and I had to climb rocks how where covert in snow. It was a dangerous and scary climb. Here some photo’s of the last days:
