Winter? Not far anymore…

I’ve just realized that I haven’t updated my blog for quite a while 😉 But instead of spending the time in front of the computer, I love it to be outdoors 🙂 So many things have happened in this month. Been skiing already for some times and just came back from the last two stops of the Freeride Filmfestival where our film “Shukran Morocco” has been presented.

Vienna, two days of full house (more than 600 people per evening for the screenings) and Warschau (totally motivated polish skiers in the house, more than 300 people and if there would have been more space in the cinema, there would have been much more people!)

Thanks a lot to the organizers: especially to Manfred Pascher & Harry Putz for an amazing Filmtour! It has proved that there is lots of potential and it was a great platform for all of us riders to present our films all over Europe! Thank you!

If you haven’t seen our film “Shukran Morocco” yet, it will be online pretty soon but I’ll keep you informed about that! Here’s the trailer:

Innsbruck, the second stop of the tour was definetely a highlight for me! Full house on two days and sooooo many friends that came!!!! Thanks to everybody for a great time!!!!

And, oh man, I was sooooo nervous for the interview on stage 😉 hahhahaa….

Now the filmpresentations are coming to an end – time that it starts snowing again, to get on snow!!!!

 

At this point I also want to thank my sponsors! In the meantime most of my gear for winter has arrived!

Right now technical skiing on the slope and avalanche training is the main focus as it’s not possible to ride in the backcountry yet…

Avalanche training on the glacier with friends… Are you ready?
Also been on the first skitour for this winter with my Fischer teambuddies and friends Steph Skrobar & Basti Huber – it was a great day!
