Twice an Olympian mogul skier, back to back winner of SBMC in Riksgränsen and previous Xtreme Verbier competitor. After competing in the Olympics in Pyeongchang 2018, Hedvig Wessel decided to put her mogul skis away to fully invest in her freeskiing career. Her next goal? Reaching the top of the podium in the Freeride World Tour 2019.
Hedvig was born 1995 in Oslo, Norway and has been skiing for as long as she can remember. Despite her age, Hedvig has the experience of much older athletes. Hedvig is currently combining her skiing career with business studies in Lausanne. Besides managing school and her athletic lifestyle, she runs her social media channels like a pro. She recently created a new web series of short ski movies called Hedvigs Way which portraits her path towards the top of the Freeride World Tour.
Hedvig always tries to be in the present and when skiing, she truly is.
