Born, raised and still live in Oslo. Lived up north while in the service, and skied the resorts there then (Narvik being the only one I've put up so far. Excellent BC terrain all over the place). Been skiing since I could walk, as is the norm here.
Apart from Norway I've skied Sweden, France, Italy and Switzerland. Hope to taste US pow this spring.
Yes, I'm a skiaholic ( wouldn't want Prickly with his good taste in WC skiers to be alone ).
Just like Ami I will sometimes strap xc skis on, somewhat reluctantly, but still. Have had some epic xc week long marches while in green, but prefer alpine skiing more. Work with skis on in Oslo.
