Was it mentally demanding?

– There was a lot of back and forth, with a lot of ideas… It was a difficult period where I found myself thinking that this is something I never want to do again. I've been skiing for as long as I can remember, and have only had a couple of bad falls, so statistically speaking, it went well.


Although the 31-year-old is looking forward to fighting again on the track, he makes no secret that it will be a difficult process.

He admits that standing on top of an alpine hill again can be scary at first. However, the Norwegian star is optimistic about the return.

-I think at first it will be a little uncomfortable. But I will take it step by step, and in the end it will not be so scary, because then I will have enough experience. It's also good to know that it was an “innocent fall” into a chill, and I won't do it again.
