Henrik Windstedt joins the Salomon Freeski Team

Still waiting on an offical press release, but word is that Swedish ski star Henrik Windstedt has joined the Salomon Freeski Team.  Windstedt was an innovator in the terrain park scene with strong showings at Winter X in the 2003.  Then he just vanished.

Two years later he reemerged as a big mountain skier.  His first year back in the spotlight, Windstedt was crowned champion of the Freeride World Tour. 

Starting out a junior racer, moving on to mogul comps, then to the terrain park, and ultimately to the big lines of the back country, Windstedt is one of the greatest all-around skiers on the planet.  ESPN recently profiled him, and the piece is definitely a worthy read.

Congrats to Henrik and his joining the hallowed Salomon Freeski Team.
