Skiing, Norway

As part of this year’s Warren Miller production “Chasing Shadows" we asked HH ambassador Øystein Aasheim to share some memories from filming in Alaska; “Just as we arrived in Cordova, it started snowing, and did so for almost two days straight. I don´t think I´ve ever been as excited as I was at that point; on my first trip to Alaska, and it seemed to never stop snowing. Eventually, the weather cleared, and we flew up into the Chugach to set up camp. The whole day went by walking around with powder to our waists, stamping out places and setting ...

Cancer patients fight to have their normal lives back. The German non-profit organization “Segelrebellen”, or “Sailing Rebel”, makes it their goal to support young adults who suffer from cancer - with sailing. These sailing adventures, organized by Segelrebellen, are not pleasant onboard holidays. The participants endure several challenges throughout the duration of the trip to develop strength and motivation, both critical attributes on their paths to recovery. At Helly Hansen, we believe that the Segelrebellen sailing enterprises are a great way to encourage young adults suffering from cancer, and we are pleased that we can provide them with Helly ...

The King Edward VII Gold Cup is the oldest match-racing trophy in the world for competitions involving one-design yachts. It was given at the Tri-Centenary Regatta at Jamestown, Virginia, in 1907 by King Edward VII in commemoration of the 300th Anniversary of the first permanent settlement in America.
