Hit the white room in style – Erika’s insights about the season

Hello ladies,

We’re in the middle of the season and the countdown has begun…XX Freeride Camp 2015 is just around the corner and I cannot describe how excited I am.

Thinking about how far we’ve come with boosting female riders both locally and international makes me feel so thrilled. I put a smile on my face every time I see another girl out sledding since it was not that common a couple of years ago. Honestly, when we came up with the idea to kick off XX Freeride Camp I could never imagined how successful it would turn out to be.

But for sure, it can never go wrong with the most amazing Crew and all the lovely girls attending the XX Camp. I feel so proud of all of you.

That moment you’ll laugh so hard it hurts out in the backcountry…I know sledding is the “it” thing, love it!

Something that I’ve learned and taking with me this season is that it’s about technique more than strength or how much you weigh. How do you improve that? By working on it. It is most definitely a challenge but great achievements comes from practice.

I try to always set a small goal for myself.  For example, I know I doing better sidehilling to my left more than my right, so sometimes I decide to only sidehill to my right during one day. I think it’s important to work on improvements but still have fun while out riding.

I’m confident my Ski-doo Summit X 154” is going to take me through deep pow and exhilarating mountain places this season. We’re teaming up well.

Besides putting on the most stylish SCS Unlimited custom wrap, I don’t have to do anything to make this sled look great!

The colors fits my style and I really love the overall look of the sled together with my HMK onepiece. Nothing make me more motivated that hit the white room stylish.

With less than one week to XX Freeride Camp I cannot explain how much I looking forward to seeing all my riding buddies that I haven’t seen since last season – and, meet up with new sled chic’s. So blessed.

The highlights for me this season will be (besides XX Camp) riding, filming and exploring new places in Sweden and spending time with both new and existing sled buddies!

Now – let’s accomplish our aim to arrange Sweden’s coolest girl camp – we want the attendants to leave with a huge smile on their faces, then we have succeeded. See you next week girls!
