Sondre was born in Oppdal, and started snowboarding there at a young age. His passion for snowboarding grew over the years, so he moved to Sogndal, and has been living there the last years. There he works as a teacher, and is super happy about that. Sondre is the only snowboarder in his friends group both in Oppdal and Sogndal, all the others ride skis. Sondre means that this has helped his development by always riding with high quality skiers, and his fluent riding style is a result of this. Sondre suffered from a bad injury a few years ago, but is fully recovered, and can`t wait to get at it for full this season. His main focus is hunting endless powder, surrounded by good friends, try to finish some long – time bucket list runs. This season will focus on pictures and filming, with maybe some competitions.
Besides snowboarding, Sondre enjoys the outdoors, such as hunting, and recently participated a ultramarathon. Next summer he aims to finish a 160 km race, after his good friend tricked him into it.
Sondre say he is “thrilled to work with Nordlys, which is a company I really look up to.They grown from a small company, and now having the biggest brads in the business, but even though they have grown big, the family core value is still intact. Also, Black Diamond is one of the worlds biggest forces to be reckoned with within action sports, and I can`t wait to be a part of that.
