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…

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¬į = 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…

Jump for joy at Weißsee

After a very disappointing winter season with rare snowfall accompanied by hurricane winds every time, I have pretty mixed emotions about what is only my second, but will be my final competition this year.

2 runs on 20 centi: pretty good for this season!

Heres the quick edit of the 2 runs. Thanks to Rehall Outerwear for the great Blaze one-piece suit and accessories and Julbo Eyewear for amazing visibility with the Aerospace Goggles and Light Red Zebra Lenses! So this year’s snowfall, here in Pinzgau, has been about as depressing as watching current US politics. But finally Mother…

FWQ 2* Open Faces Kappl 2017: a lesson in concentration

It’s that time of year again! It’s the end of an era and the beginning of a new one. Thanks to ReHall Outerwear, the era of the Dirty Banana is over. I have chosen the one-piece called Blaze to tackle the mountains and got to debut the suit at Kappl! Bright and early on Saturday…

Yay splitboarding finally!! Kloben it is…

Splitboard Tour Kloben from Fuschert√∂rl 5. Mai 2016 with: Chris Hesselbach, Clemens Hiller, Philip Volker, Michi Riepl I was actually pretty happy to hear that my buddies were thinking about arranging a splitboard tour, now that the winter snowboard season is technically over. We have had a trying winter which didn‚Äôt really¬†begin until February. There…

FWQ 3* Open Faces Montafon 2016: beware of sharks!

Coming off a 3rd place finish in Morgins, I was stoked for Montafon. I had wanted to take part in the Montafon race in it’s first year but it coincided with the race in Nendaz and I couldn‚Äôt make it on time to the riders’ meeting so couldn‚Äôt start. This time around was different! I…
