You might think that Torstein is Mr. Popular and that everything was handed to him on a silver platter. Well that’s just not the case. While he’s got some serious hype right now, back in the day he was often picked last…

Torstein is so down to give back to his fans, and in turn you’re down for him: He’s consistently the most-searched rider on TWSNOW.com, and he’s won our Readers’ Choice award the past two seasons. We figured what better way to interview the man of the people than with the people. So we got you to ask him whatever you wanted on our Facebook fan page. And you didn’t hold back—there were more than 650 questions, making it our most commented post. After scouring the list, we mixed a few of the best questions with some of our own. Oh, and one of you who got your question picked wins Torstein’s 2013 DC board. 

TWS: For two seasons you’ve been working on a documentary. What’s that about?

The documentary, which we’re calling It’s a Love Story, has been cool. We might change the name, but that’s what it is right now. My friend Toby [Froystad] followed me everywhere for the past two years. So we have a lot of behind-the-scenes stuff as well as video part footage. The real footage is going to DC for their new movie Must Be Nice, but there’s also going to be actual snowboard shots in the documentary. The documentary is going to have everything: all the bangers, all the B-shots. Toby does his stuff differently than most. I can say for sure that it’s not going to be a slow 60-minute documentary. You’re not going to be guessing if I’m dead or anything based on the music. It’s going to have a fun, fast-paced vibe.

You landed a triple cork in the backcountry two seasons ago. Why didn’t blow it up online like when you landed the first triple cork in 2010?

[Laughs] I don’t know. This time I didn’t want to make a big deal out of it. When I landed the first triple cork I had four angles on the jump and I felt like putting it out right away. It turned out to be a good thing, too. Last year I just didn’t have the time to put it out there. The contest season was super heavy, and I didn’t have too much time to film street stuff. I wanted to focus on getting backcountry stuff that I felt like I could hold on to for a year and save it for the movie. I didn’t want to blow it out.
