This 20-year-old Swede has been making waves in the freestyle ski scene since he popped up at the Jon Olsson Invitational in 2004 aged just 13. He did not let the magnitude of the occasion over- awe him, and was more than capable of holding his own on the huge features, even against the seasoned pros, finishing that competition in ninth place. Oscar’s background is typical of most Swedish skiers. He was first on skis at the age of two and could practically slide down mountains before he could properly walk. His early ski career saw him race gates and he was sent to an alpine academy.
However pretty soon Oscar found himself drawn to freeskiing. These days he is based in A?re in winters where he trains with some of the best freestylers in the world. In summer Oscar is based in Stockholm, although he tries to get away for training as much as possible. When he’s not skiing he dabbles in a bit of tennis, but other than that he is either skiing or dreaming about it. Oscar’s biggest dream in skiing would be to win an X Games gold medal, and he is super motivated this year to earn his ticked to Aspen and Tignes with great early-season results.
