He got his first pair of skis in January 1999. He started skiing in Marikollen Skisenter, a small hill about 5 minutes from where he grew up, in Rælingen, Norway. His father and former ski racer, Lars Kristoffersen introduced Henrik to the sport, hooked him to training from the age of six – and he is now one of the most winning Norwegian alpinists through history. We are of course talking about Henrik Kristoffersen.
