On the travel

I like to do more of this. Travelling small places in the Alps and visiting friends. I missed the first months of winter because of my broken hand, I have to admit it’s nearly been frustrating seeing all the postings and info about the epic conditions all over Europe on various social media. But I’ve learned to put more value on the things I have, to accept things as they come and see the bigger purpose in them. So thanks guys for making my trip. Pier, Nicke and Nives, Jaakko and Petter.

I’ve only been able to ride for a couple of weeks, but I’ve tried to get the most out of it. Been riding in variable terrain and snow, with friends a bit all over the Alps. From flying around steep trees in Bad Hofgestein, competition in the FWQ event in Goldeck, climbing ridges in the Dolomites to trying something in foggy weather and shitty snow here in Verbier, I feel I’ve seen a lot in a short time. But now it’s time to leave, recoop, plan and get back on it when the conditions are right again.

A bit flat light but a cool spine. I came to Cortina to feel the amazing couloir stuff they have, but we ended up skiing something else. Nice stuff though, long descents and pretty steep.
