Per Jonsson is a guy that thought he should be an icehockey player when he was young. After a trip to Red Mountain, BC he change his mind. He went home after a couple of months in Canada and participated in the Swedish championship. After two days of competing he won the whole thing and become a Swedish champion for the first time. His start as a freerider is almost like a fairy tale but true.
Today Per is traveling around the world with his skis and is consistently published in magazines and in different ski movies. He has had the biggest part in the Free radicals movie the last two years and is well know in his home country Sweden. Per rides telemarks like nobody else and always with a big smile in his face. He is a very positive guy and nothing is impossible to this 27 year old you from the really north of Sweden. Per is always on the run and the plans for the next year have already started. He says that next year will be even better than last season with even more powder and big lines.
