The exhibition interprets snowboarding and modern skiing as part of the same phenomenon, characterised by individuality and the quest for unique experiences.
Holmenkollen Ski Museum describes Freedom on Snow like this:
"Ski and snowboard is not just a sport and activity, it is a lifestyle. Thinking outside the box, pushing limits. The perhaps most central element in both is the playfulness and having fun.
This is reflected in the exhibition where you have several chances to play with our installations. Both cultures put more emphasis on the communal feeling than the results. The arena for competing is just as often social media channels and film. The exhibition is interactive with films, interviews, and clips from old snowboard and ski films."
