4frnt-sponsored skier Niklas Karlstrom recently took home the Freeride Video Award contest held by Swedish skiing website Freeride.se. 

Karlstrom, a long-time freestyle skiing pro since the days of such ski films as Kris Ostness’ legendary movie “Teddy Bear Crisis,” crafted his entry with a most impressive display of all-around skiing prowess. The edit features smooth, deep powder skiing, jaw-dropping double flips, and even the obligatory “tree tap.”

For his efforts, Karlstorm earned himself a brand new Mac Book Pro.
