Meet Kristofer Turdell – the current champion of the Freeride World Tour. Born and raised in the small Swedish town Gällivare, north of the Arctic Circle, Kristofer learned how to ski at an early age. Today, he's known for his powerful, technical skiing and his ability to make challenging lines look easy in any terrain. After a smashing performance in his first FWT competition ever, Kristofer quickly went from rookie to one of the favourites for the overall title. His favourite quote is (Translated from Swedish): “As a mountain birch, easy to bend but impossible to break” When he isn’t skiing he likes to do all sorts of active stuff, for example biking and sailing while listening to his favourite music, techno. Earning his success in previous competitions, Kristofer now has his mind firmly set on defending the world champion title.
