We have finally used our skis on this trip and climbed Mt Ararat in Turkey and Mt Damavand in Iran. The snow conditions were surprisingly good and the weather was really kind to us. Check out the big blog update about those two volcanoes and our travels in general. We will reach Kyrgyzstan in a few days from now.
I’m on a pretty big mission at the moment. Some friends and I are driving our campervan from Innsbruck all the way to Kyrgyzstan and maybe even further to China and Pakistan. I have always been really interested in that area of Asia but never got the chance to go there.
Since I’m on the go right now I’ll keep it short. After filming in Revelstoke and the FWT stop in Fieberbrunn I’m back in North America again. I btw landed on a rock at my run in Fieberbrunn, kept on skiing but obviously got a big deduction by the judges and ended up on 15th place.
Hey guys. I didn’t get lucky at the last few comps, I crashed 3 out of 3 FWQ 4-Stars already. This time in Hochfügen I tried to ski a similar line than last year but wanted to do the last part a bit bigger. Unfortunately I got too much backseat in the first landing of my double and just flew backseat off the next cliff. I was really bummed because it would have been a cool run and I really like this comp face. You can watch my POV video, filmed with Contour here underneath the text.
Hey guys, Domi and me did our first north face this season. After all those lift accessed skidays we figured that we had to go on an adventure again. The last time I’ve used my crampons and ice axes was back in New Zealand in summer. Unfortunately we started pretty late that day and spent some extra time practicing different rope safety techniques so it got dark on our way back out of the valley. The good thing about being late was the amazing sunset when we got out of the wall. Thankfully the full moon was really bright because none of us brought a headlamp.
Winter in Austria has kicked off pretty good. I had lots of skiing lately and I’ve already been on some trips and photoshoots in France, Italy, Switzerland and of course Austria. Unfortunately I didn’t keep my blog up to date since my trip to New Zealand but I will definitely work on that from now on. Apart from some filming and photoshootings I try to get ready for the first competitions and filmprojects in January and February. The first competition is in La Clusaz next weekend.
