FWQ 3*** Xover Ride 2018 – last comp?!

The 3rd event of this season for me was a home game. On the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier here in Pinzgau was possibly my last competition. I have been toying with the idea of “retiring” from the FWQ Series as the oldest competitor, although I still do have a ton of fun at it! I am not…

And here it is! The GoPro POV of my run during the Xover Ride competition this past weekend. The whole story of the comp as well as a bunch of pictures are coming soon! Here is also the picture of the competition face since it looks extremely different from above ūüėČ

3* FWQ Engadinsnow: hello Corvatsch!

  Following an excellent start to the winter season in November and December, I was really looking forward to the freeride contest season. I’m playing with the idea of this being my last season in the Freeride World Qualifiers so I want to really enjoy it! The first stop for me was in St. Moritz/Silvaplana…

Fresh tracks in Saalbach – short video sequence

What do you get when you combine a new external hard drive, a new freeware video editing program and a few hours on the mountain? A short edit of my day out in Saalbach! It was the second day borrowing my friend’s homemade “selfie-stick” to finally have some other angle than POV from the helmet….

FWQ 3* Engadinsnow: In all Fairness

My final competition this season, a.k.a.¬†the 2nd one, was at the¬†FWQ 3* Engadinsnow competition in St. Moritz/Silvaplana Switzerland. Back in¬†2013, where the snow was piled up higher than I could reach, I had¬†one of my most satisfying runs in a competition thanks to the fantastic conditions and playful terrain on the Forcla face. However this…

I-FREE Best Prize Ever! Canalone Marinelli!

The dream of heli-boarding was a motivating factor in my decision to begin competing freeride. Actually, I didn‚Äôt really decide to start competing as such… I just figured that 35‚ā¨ starting fees for a shot at heli-boarding, was totally worth it: Never try, never know! The I-FREE Freeride Circuit boasted a once in a lifetime…

Gibraltar Impressions or Why I Hate Monkeys

Following several days in Barcelona Spain in November 2011, my Dad and I flew down to Sevilla then left directly for Gibraltar in a rental car. Gibraltar is a tiny stretch of land with a very big rock and under British rule. It was a James Bond location in “The Living Daylights.” Visiting Bond locations…

First time surfing (for real)! A weekend in Basque Country

My company wanted to send me to Spain for a supplier audit… that sounded really cool, I had never been to Spain! With a little research I found a flight for half the price if I was to return after the weekend rather than Friday… ūüėÄ Opportunity! This is how work-life balance is maintained. I…

Skiing Indoors in Belgium?!

That’s right, a ski-hall… wait, what is that?! Think: a giant construction container up on stilts. I was part of an Austrian¬†group of Pinzgau ski schools and tourist agencies¬†travelling to Belgium’s ski hall in Peer to promote tourism. The pictures of the hotel are courtesy of the hotel’s website (thanks again guys)! We arrived in…
