Avalanche safety Update…

It’s already a week ago… Time is flying ;-)…

Last sunday me and a collague went to Ramsau/Dachstein to meet the other teammates of the “Bergstation.at” (www.diebergstation.at) for discussions about the latest avalanche safety updates…

Well, usually it takes 2 hours to get there BUT we were talking and talking and talking and didn’t realize that we were following the wrong way 😉 hahaha… 3 hours later and lots of extra km’s we finally got to the beautiful Dachstein area 😉

Met the other teammates there and had a good time… Snowpulse backpack and ABS-Airbag system www.abs-airbag.com was demonstrated, all the different beacons were tested and lots of different discussions about all kinds of searching strategies, etc was on the go…

Great day with interesting people!

Hochfügen…

…it’s been another awesome day out in the mountains, surprisingly great pow to ski 🙂 Still rocky but hey, it’s end of November!!!! 🙂 So great conditions & company, awesome skiing, faceshots – what do you want more?

Was out with some of Linehunters crew, www.linehunters.com,  inspecting the Face of the Freeride Qualifier www.freerideworldtour.com , well, looking forward to a great winter :-)…

Some impressions from the day…

Last days of biking for this year?

…the “Fön” in Innsbruck brought very mild temperatures to Tirol, so we decided to go biking instead of skiing 😉 Perfect bike weather, challenging trails, great company with Dani and Hannes, dirt all over, awesome! 🙂

We started out from Grinzens, biked into the direction of the Kemater Alm with a beautiful view to the “Kalkkögel” and went further to the “Salfeinsalm” up on 1738 m… Hannes went up all the way to the top of the Salfein 2000 m,covered in snow, whereas we stayed behind and enjoyed the trails… The fun part came when biking down 😉 Some nice hiking trails, some snowy parts on the road, totally full of dirt when we got back to the car ;-)… GREAT DAY!!!! 🙂 Thxxxx Dani and Hannes 🙂

Kirschbaum Opening St. Anton

…Grand Opening of the new Kirschbaum Freeride and Lifestyle store in St. Anton… http://www.kirsch-baum.com/ 600 m² shopping highlight with lots of awesome sport and lifestyle equipment… It was great to see that sooooooo many young people came to celebrate the Opening… One of the highlights of the day was Lukas Steiner and his crew showing great performance in their sport – PARCOUR… Awesome!!!!

Another highlight was the BIG TOMBOLA… FISCHER supported the Kirschbaum Store with a cool new pair of Freestyle skis and I was in the happy position to present the ski, give it to the winner and talk about the FISCHER WHITE CREST TEAM… http://www.fischersports.com (New Homepage of the team should be out in the next days…) As a new team member it was of course an honour to be there representing the whole team 🙂

Happy winner of the ski was a young girl from Innsbruck 🙂

Another highlight… I guess a six or seven year old boy won an ABS-avalanche backpack 🙂 So funny because the little boy was soooooo happy not even knowing what special price he had won 😉

Obergurgl…

Skiing with friends is what I love most… Today was the perfect day to cruise around, enjoy it to be on the mountain and of course checking out possible lines for the winter 🙂 Always good to be back in Obergurgl… My home for quite a while…

GORE-TEX Snow Academy…

 

I’m such a lucky girl at the moment 🙂 Studying a little and being out in the mountains most of the time 🙂 Life couldn’t be better…

I just got back from Kaunertal, spending some time at the Gore-Tex Snow Academy… Sunny days on the mountain, great snow conditions, awesome people, good vibes 🙂

Gore-Tex http://www.gore-tex.de as our main sponsor from our girls ski movie project “AS WE ARE” invited us girls to Kaunertal to represent our movie and ski with sport journalists from Austria and Germany. Unfortunately not all of the girls couldn’t be there, so Pia and me represented the team… A lot of positive feedback about the film 🙂 jipiiiii 🙂

Here are some impressions from that beautiful day…
