Have been down in the village a few days now, being sick. It’s kind of weird, cause I can’t remember last time sickness kept me away from skiing for this long. It’s only a week, but it still sucks. My lungs are hurting, and I’m coughing like hell.
I ve been skiing the 186 Blizzard Bodacious since new years, but went back to the 196 today, and… I really like it. I like long skis! The 186 is perfect for most people I guess, and I really like shredding on it in Canada. But it just feels easier for me to have a longer ski. More stable.
Also went back to a fleece jacket I kind of forgot that I had – The North Face Radish Mid Layer (check last picture). It’s a fleece with a tight hood, that I use as balaclava. My favorite. No snow down the neck!
Well, check the pics. If you’re reading at Freeride.se, you need to click the photos to read the captions.
The last days I had in Engelberg was really epic. Fast pow on top, sunny and warm in the valley. I was shredding with Oskar, Yves Husler (coolest name in snowboarding), Mattias Hargin, Bolling and the rest of the good guys down there. Here’s a video of some of the happy-shred that went down. Enjoy it, and spread it:
