extreme skiing and a great party in Roldal Røldal Freeride Challenge was held high up above the skisenter this weekend, in the valley between Roldal and Seljestad, with the old road buried under many metres of snow. Saturday had cloudless blue skies and no wind - perfect for chilling out and watching extremely skillful and utterly crazy people find the most dangerous way down a nearly vertical mountain side in the fastest and most stylish way.

Several hundred people came along to watch - nearly all on skis or boards - with refreshments on offer and music, a palm tree and an inflatable mammoth included.

On the right you can see one of the competitors flying down a "small" cliff on the way down the approximately 400 metre slope.

Røldal skisenter is high up in the mountains of Hordaland on the E 134 road, between Haugesund and Oslo. This year thay have had - and still have - masses of snow and great skiing conditions.
