Johan grew up on small hills in the middle of Sweden. Alpine racing was the natural path he walked, but the slalom skis went straight to the basement after his first powder trip. Since then he's been traveling the globe in search for good snow, even though his "Sh*t F*uck-edit" he made with Epic TV made him famous for the opposite. "Enjoy all conditions, and you'll never have a boring day on the mountain" is his motto. In the off season, Johan tries to spend as little time as possible in his home in Stockholm, and as much as possible in a tent far out in the mountains, with a fly fishing rod in one hand and a mug of strong coffee in the other. Trail biking is his other big summer passion, but he claims he have to take it easy with that one, since Strava is about to take over his life...
