GRAPHICS

Since we launched our first model in 2012 we have been happy to have local artists creating the graphics of our skis. For us it’s really important that a ski graphic has a relationship to the intended use and environment the ski is meant for. We want the customer to look down at the ski, and feel inspired to go skiing. Our talented artist Rikke and Stine has given us just that with graphics that stick out, have local roots and inspire you to get to the mountains! Read more below about the artist and what goes into the design of the different skis! 

 
 
 

RIKKE WIDDE VESTVIG

From the very beginning it has always been about nature. As soon as I was able to hold a pencil, I drew mountains. My friends drew houses, dogs and hearts, I drew sunsets and shades, and that has stayed with me throughout the years. The pencil has changed from lead to a digital one, but my soul and inspiration has stayed the same, only wethered by growth and experiences in life.

I guess in some way it just never ceases to amaze me how light and weather plays with all aspects of nature to show us new angles and horisonts, even in places we have seen and visited a hundred times. Now, living in one of Norway's most beautiful areas I´m constantly inspired by my deeply rooted desire to go on adventures and my love for sharing those adventures in my drawings or with friends. 

 

STINE LILLOE-OLSEN

As a passionate skier, my favorite environment has always been close to the mountains. I am inspired by the magnificence and splendor of the natur and am intrigued by constantly exploring contrasting elements. I grew up among the west coast mountains and my inspiration is often from my familiar surroundings. 

I have been drawing and painting since my early childhood, but there is still so much more to be done!

HURRUNGANE 89 - GRAPHICS BY RIKKE WIDDE WESTVIG

One of our closest mountain ranges is called Hurrungane. On a sunny winter day the black mountains spark to life and shine in every shade of white, blue and green. Packed with unimaginable lines and amazing views it's one of the places we love to ski and hide from everyday life. One of the gateways to Hurrungane is Turtagrø Hotel, a iconic building at the very foot of the mountains.

HURRUNGANE 101 - GRAPHICS BY RIKKE WIDDE WESTVIG

The graphics on Hurrungane 101 is inspired by that feeling you have when closing the door behind you and setting off towards the mountains. It is a walk through the mental and physical strain we skiers are willing to go through to reach our summits, and that feeling of lightness and peace found when you finally reach the top. The Hurrungane mountain range is a place in Sogn where skiers can choose to chase that feeling of lightness and serenity.

The graphics on Hurrungane 101 is inspired by that feeling you have when closing the door behind you and setting off towards the mountains. It is a walk through the mental and physical strain we skiers are willing to go through to reach our summits, and that feeling of lightness and peace found when you finally reach the top. The Hurrungane mountain range is a place in Sogn where skiers can choose to chase that feeling of lightness and serenity. The Hurrungane 101 is the fierce brother of Hurrungane 101, and the darker, more fiery colour theme represents the skiers with that inner, deep desire and fire to push themselves even further. 

SGNskis-GRAFIKK-RAKKAR-1.png

RAKKAR - GRAPHICS BY RIKKE WIDDE WESTVIG

The inspiration for RAKKAR is drawn from those dark, almost magical winter nights when the snow absorbs every sound and covers every rock and root under a heavy silver blanket. Cutting through the darkness, sharp white lights from several headlamps, followed by silver mist and big smiles. Silence, silver, snow. Everyone loves nightskiing in Sogn!

SGNskis-GRAFIKK-TOGGA-2.png

TOGGA - GRAPHICS BY STINE LILOE-OLSEN

With our local Togga mountain in focus at the front of the ski the graphics then go on into the forest where we slash turns on our planks. But beware of the trolls that lurk in the forest, you better keep the pace up! The style is very much influenced by the traditional paintings of trolls by John Bauer, drawings and paintings that we as scandinavians have grown up with.

But beware of the trolls that lurk in the forest, you better keep the pace up! The style is very much influenced by the traditional paintings of trolls by John Bauer, drawings and paintings that we as scandinavians have grown up with. On this light version the colours were inspired by the northern lights, that illuminate sky on some magic winter nights!

TUNNELVISJON - GRAPHICS BY RIKKE WIDDE WESTVIG

Our team rider Asbjorn Ness has a thing for speed, tunnels and snowplows. Growing up in the western part of Norway he has found that driving through tunnels connecting one mountain to the other is a natural part of skiing. Meeting the snowplow has always been a sure and welcome sign of deep snow and powderdays. Tunnelvision is all about capturing history, memories of good rides and the anticipation at the very top of a couloir.
