Where are you from? I am from Stavanger, on the west coast of Norway. A city known for wind & rain, but also for its great beaches, nice hiking possibilities & the oil.

Why do you love being outdoor?  I love being outdoor due to all the possibilities that exist there in regards to surfing, skiing, hiking, jogging etc. Also doing an outside activity really makes me happy & I always feel really relaxed coming home after an outdoor experience.

Favorite product in the collection? It’s difficult to choose a single favorite product in the great collection of Fiveseasons1982. I maybe have a favorite product for each usage area. However the Valfagehr padded jacket is one of my absolute favorites. For skiing on powder days I really like the Langen jacket which is wind & water-proof. For Christmas I really wish for a green Revelstoke jacket. This one looks amazing for outdoor activities.

Best place to ski? Best place to ski in Norway I must say in the Lyngen Alps in the Northern part of Norway. Best place I have been outside of Norway I must say Whistler in Canada or Gressoney, Monterosa in Italy or in the Saas Fee area in Switzerland. This season I am going to Niseko in Japan which I am really excited about. I believe that I will have my best powder experience in this particular place.

Best place to hike? One of the best hikes I have had was at Segla in Senja in the northern part of Norway. Amazing view of the fjord. Another great hike was at Litlkalinn in Sunndalsøra on the north-west part of Norway.

How is Living in Stavanger? Living in Stavanger is great. You have many possibilities for work, but also for outdoor activities. Probably the best thing is that you can surf before work & you can go to the mountains to ski or hike after work. A good combination in a city not too big. Also in the weekends the city is located not far away from great ski-resorts like Røldal & Haukelifjell for powderskiing.

Why should customers buy Five Seasons products? People should buy Five Seasons products because they are quality products in good design to a reasonable price. I also believe that this brand is in constant development & I am looking forward to their great new products also in the future. My experience with these clothes are very good & I can’t wait to try them out in deep powder in Japan.
