My name is Caroline and I have been riding snowmobile for many years now, for a long time you could only find me on a short sled going fast on trails but the last two-three years I have become aware of how incredibly fun it is to be riding off trails! My interest in freeriding really took off after participating in the Women’s International Freeride Tour 2013. There I meet the girls that now days are my closest friends.
My father has always been interested in machines and engines, so I am lucky that I have had the chance to try it out. I have competed in both endurance race and vintage snowmobile racing. But that cannot compare to the freedom of sledding in the backcountry, which is a real adventure.
I am fortunate to work with snowmobiles at BRP Sweden, which means that the BRP playground is a natural part of my day-to-day work.
I have so many great memories from earlier seasons, two trips to Canada, XX Freeride Camp and last years XX Convention – all these days have all been amazing! It is like a dream come true, to be part of this and to meet all these people that shares the same interests.
I am still developing my snowmobiling but I am at the same time experiencing awesome days and the best part; I meet so many new friends. As Erika says, ” during winter all the friends out in the snow becomes family” and that is how I feel, I am lucky to have such a big and wonderful family! =)
When Erika and I started planning XX Freeride Camp for the first time we had no idea of how many girls there was out there that shares our interest. After these years we are still being amazed after seeing all girls that attend our camp. And I am forever thankful for all the help we have gotten on the way and the crew that year after year keep coming to help us and giving everything during XX Freeride events!
My plan for the upcoming season is to spend as much time as possible on my sled in the mountains around Hemavan and to share does day with all great people out there.
I truly had the best time ever last season and to all of you that I meet – Thanks for all moments, I cherish them. And to all of you that I did not get a chance to meet, I hope to see you in the snow this winter! =)
See you out in the backcountry.
