Tor Olav Naalsund
He works as a IFMGA Mountainguide in Oppdal, Norway. He brings his guests skiing in his favorite skiing area; the coastal mountains further west of Oppdal in the region where he grew up, Sunndalsfjella.
Thats also where he has his part ∙ job for the Norwegian Avalanche Forecast. He has been skiing for 35 years, since mid ∙ 80`s. He started as a telemarkskier back then, because that`s what everyone did in my small hometown. That led him to win several Worldcup ∙ races on his telemarkskis in late 90`s. He was skiing and touring on alpine gear from 2000 ∙ 2012 (mostly because of the lack of good touring gear for telemark in those years), but then back to telemark in 2013.
He telemarks because that`s what gives him the best skiing and skitouring during a long and variable winter season.
