A week in the hills

The Swedes were way ahead of the X Games: 1996 That video still impresses me even by today's standards. These days the X Games builds Halfpipes with walls as high as that 1996 Quarter in Sweden. Nevertheless, watching Ingemar hit that after a snowmobile tow was pretty fantastic. It was on the cover of every snowboard mag at the time (we didn't have youtube and the net was young) and it set a new standard for going big.

Terje hit a quarter in Norway some years later that was huge:

That's about all I have for today.
