Sigurd Løvfall (The Explorer)
Sigurd’s love for the mountains has led him to live, climb and ski anywhere from New Zealand in the South, to Svalbard in the North. He grew up in Asker outside Oslo, but is spending every weekend in the mountains, either with skis or crampons, or preferably both. He started skiing at the age of 4, at Gaustablikk in Telemark, with leather boots and telemark-bindings.
Sigurd is still a dedicated telemark skier, and has done several big mountain test pieces and first descents. He has competed in freeride events since 2010, and won the Norwegian Freeride cup in 2013. The urge to ski places that required special techniques, lured him into the fascinating world of alpine climbing. After finishing school, Sigurd went to Canada to live his dream. He moved to Chamonix in 2010, and got familiar with the combination of climbing and skiing in high altitudes. Among many things he has done, is a successful trip to summit some of the 7000 meters in Kirgisistan. Now a board member of the Norwegian Alpine Club and a dedicated mountaineer, he has also climbed many characteristic Norwegian mountains and has several big projects in the pipeline.
As a capable author, Sigurd has delivered several interesting articles to different ski and mountain magazines the last years. This winter he will be in charge of a freeride contest I Jotunheimen, with Heftye Opplevelser. Otherwise, you will find him in the Scandinavian mountains, exploring more of his own back yard. With a backpack, ice axe and a pair of Stereo skis, doing what he likes the most; adventures in alpine winter terrain.
