My name is Magne, and I'm an Norwegian thats been snowboarding for about 15 or 16 years. I'm 27 years old now, and live in Bergen, Norway, wich is also my place of birth. A beautiful place!
I hope to be active on this forum in the time to come. I've had a few seasons now with almost no snowboarding due to other interests and a whole lot of working, but now I'm back on track with snowboarding and I'm going to continue with that till i get old and die (on the mountain, hopefully).. I sold my old board (Ride Timeless) and boaught a Burton Custom with Burton Cartel Est bindings and the Ruler boots. I love the bindings and the boots, but mabye I'll get a new board for next season. We'll see.. I love both riding in powder and in the parks, and it all depends on the conditions on the mountain. New and fresh snow is better than anything!
One of the reasons I'm here is just to get some input from people outside Norway. Snowboarding is a fairly big sport over here (but skiing has taken more over the last few years), and as you know everybody here is born with skies on their feet (its kind of a saying over here. Just imagine how painful it would be to give birth to a baby with skies on his legs). I was born with a snowboard on my feet. Even though I've been skiing also, it's nothing compared to snowboard.
These are the places I've been snowboarding trough my youth (see links below). As a teenager we all had season tickets at Voss, but later I've been trying to variate it a little bit more, going to many different places each season. But Voss is still my home when it comes to snowboarding. Love it there! Eikedalen also can be decent. All of them are located about 1,5 - 2 hours from Bergen.
Aaaand I'm here to practise my english! So have a nice day motherfuckers, and I'll see you on the (message) board!
