After some time in America I went back to Trondheim, Norway to celebrate Christmas with my family.
I got to see my sisters kids (5 years and 9 months), eat good food and enjoy some relaxing time, like they say, “in front of the fireplace”. All in all the holidays went superb, until we (the Buaas family) started passing the flu instead of gifts around the Christmas tree! Luckily this seems to be a 24-hour bug that comes in hot before it leaves again the next day, because we are all starting to feel a lot better. I must say tho, that this is the first Christmas in a long time where the “hungover” was not my completely my own fault 🙂
As I stayed inside in bed it started storming outside, as “Dagmar” created some real nature disturbance. After hearing and watching chairs fly left and right on the balcony, windows about to pop and trees about to fall over, “Dagmar” finally peaced out and left us with some of that white magic we were missing so deeply (snow). So, from one bug to another have a white Christmas & Happy holidays!
Finally, here is my season edit, episode 2 of the Roxy Refreshments. Edited by myself and filmed by many talented humans. Check it out here:
I’m happy to be featured as “Rider Of The Month” for December on Snowboard Canada Women’s website (http://www.sbcwomen.com)
Here is what they have to say about me:
Argentinean Pow turn!
“Despite some contest announcers’ inability to do so, the correct pronunciation of Roxy rider Kjersti Ostgaard Buaas’s name is something you should know (Shers-tee Bu-ahz). Not only did Kjersti win a halfpipe bronze for Norway in the 2006 Torino Olypmics, but she’s also a solid slopestyle competitor with podiums from the Burton U.S., New Zealand and European Opens as well as World Cups and Dew Tours under her belt. Her air to fakie is one of the best in the business and is (arguably) more stylish than most of the male competitors’ in the game. As seen in the Roxy Refreshments webisodes, Kjersti is also a pow slayer and a rap star. She has been competing for more than a decade and is continually stepping up her skills, so watch out for her as the contest season gets underway over the next few weeks…”
