Bard was born in 1988 and grew up far from the mountains in Stavanger, Norway but soon discovered telemark skiing in the mountains of Røldal. He started to sneak away from school to go skiing as often as he could, and his riding skills grew along with the number of days spent on the mountain.
He has spent the past winters in the alps and competing in Norwegian freeride comps. Nowadays he is combining skiing with studying for a bachelors degree in philosophy, but he still sneaks away to go skiing. The summer is spent riding his downhill bike and in the autumn he is a full time student. He likes old literature, 90s hip-hop and gets inspired by snowboard movies. Bard is happy with life and in the future he wants to continue skiing, travelling and doing other fun things.
