At the age of 22 only, Hedvig already competed in two Olympic Games in ladies’ moguls and won the prestigious Scandinavian Big Mountain Championships two times in a row.

« I’m really excited and feel honored to get the opportunity to ski the FWT 2019. After competing in the World Cup in moguls for 7 years, I wanted new challenges and this is for sure a big one. I can’t wait for the season to start and I will do my best to make a show when the tour finally begins. »
