Every snowboarder will tell you that one of the best aspects of snowboarding is the travel. Exploring new places broadens your mind, and with every new adventure you grow a little from the experience. The most recent X Games contest was held in the city of Oslo, so there was plenty of opportunity to scope out the city, see some sights, do the tourist thing and take some photos.
Visit Oslo held our hands for the duration of the trip and took us on a whole bunch of tours around the city; we saw museums, fancy restaurants, beautiful views and all the iconic spots, in between all the snowboarding. Check the shots below to get a sense of the city, the sickest riding from the comp and the view from behind the scenes.
Everyone I spoke to during the week agreed that Oslo is a great little city with plenty to do and see. A lot of people were visiting for the first time, a lot were returning home after months of contest circuitry and snow chasing. One thing was true though, that everyone was stoked to be in Oslo. Plus you can go snowboarding there, what more could you ask for?
