A typical day starts with getting up around 9:00 or 10:00 a.m. and eating some sort of breakfast. Then it’s time to get ready for a day of fun. Getting dressed, filling up the sled with fuel and oil, just making sure it’s ready for another day in the snow, and putting together some food and "Swedish fika" (coffee) for the day. All the sleds are parked close to each other, so you always meet others who are going out for a ride. You often end up doing something together, making plans or telling stories from the day before.
There are a few "famous" spots where you usually end up shoveling jumps in the sun with a bunch of sweaty and happy people, listening to music, laughing, making food or just enjoying the sun and company. It truly is the best time of the year. People passing by always stop to say hello and overall it’s just a happy vibe.
Then it’s time for jumping and action, and we’re all involved somehow. You could be the one jumping, filming, just enjoying the show or supporting other riders. Since all riders have different skills, we teach each other and help each other out to get better! It’s an amazing community and you can really push yourself and others to get better no matter what tricks you want to learn!
