"Face of Winter" Athlete Profile | Dennis Risvoll

The Norwegian freeride skier's first appearance in a Warren Miller film is full of backflips and fun.

On a recent trip with a number of Helly Hansen brand ambassadors in Norway, I had the distinct pleasure of skiing with Dennis Risvoll for four days. He’s very soft-spoken—like many Norwegians in general—but when he gets a pair of Kästle skis on his feet, he skis like a rockstar. His style is fast, smooth, and his signature backflip looks as effortless off a windlip as it does off a massive cliff.

Just like that trip in Norway, his adventure with Warren Miller Entertainment to RED Mountain in British Columbia featured a lot of fast and smooth skiing, punctuated with backflips all over the place. He definitely has a stand-out performance alongside Kaylin Richardson and Simon Hillis
