Freeride World Tour athlete Wille Lindberg didn’t realize how much his life would change when he first arrived in Jondal, Norway in May 2016. “I was a bit tired of [competing],” recalls Lindberg, a Lange and Dynastar sponsored athlete with multiple podium appearances during his five years on the global circuit, “I wanted to approach skiing in a different way, so I started learning sailing.”
Lindberg soon found himself planning and executing sail-to-ski trips around his native Sweden, and eventually in northern Norway. However, it wasn’t until a chance occurrence with the landlord of a waterfront property in Jondal that Lindberg was able to realize his dream of “doing something different.”
In this short film captured by the team at Subtech Sports, we discover how Lindberg became the owner and operator of the Hardanger Fjord Lodge—a remote bed-and-breakfast with access to seemingly endless ski-touring terrain. Lindberg’s doors are open year-round for anyone seeking untouched snow and a getaway from the buzz of everyday life.
