It’s no secret that some of the best skiers today are coming from the other side of the pond. Europe is producing some of the most talented skiers in the game. If you don’t know who Elvis Eidsvold Harsheim is – get to know this Norwegian quick!
Harsheim spent last winter getting his feet wet with the big dogs on the Dew Tour and standing on multiple European podiums. He started off the ‘10-’11 season by taking third place in the Glacier 3000 Invitational in Switzerland.
When not skiing, Elvis hangs out with his friends a lot, skates and jumps on the tramp.
He started skiing with his dad as soon as he could walk, started snowboarding then switched to twin-tips in 2004. And the rest is history.
His favorite part about all of this?
“The fact that I enjoy doing it every day,” says Elvis. “There is always new stuff to learn and I’m just hanging out with your friends, traveling and enjoying life.”
Look for Elvis at all three Dew Tour stops and European X Games. And watch for his segment, dropping in the next Chaoz Productions movie.
