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…

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….

H2O < 0° = F(u)N 2

After a broken back scare and early flight home from Indonesia at the beginning of October, I’m very happy to be back on a snowboard again with “only” a severe back contusion. I do have to take it easy still, I can barely bend forward still but physio seems to be helping a bit with…

Unfinished business Bali: surfing, sun and sea-life

I have been home for about 2 weeks now but haven’t adjusted back to the real world… I still instinctively avoid throwing paper into the toilet and am careful to not drink the water from the shower. To be honest, it makes me smile every time I catch myself doing these things and I get…

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…

The Next Generation: 3 Rugrats, 2 Days, 1 Amazing Deal!

I am a lucky one. As an auntie to 4 beautiful and talented kids, I try to fly home for Christmas and an opportunity to spend some intense quality time together. Living abroad has always been the right choice for me, but with the arrival of my sisters little ones, I felt the twinge of…
