Here are some photos I’ve been shooting today. It’s full on meetings all day long here in Xavier de le Rue’s house in Capbreton. My partners in crime is also Markus Eder, Sebastian Hanneman, Sam Smoothy, Marja Persson and the two Pou Brother came by too, even if they’re climbers and not in the snowsports team. Good times! The only problem we have, is that Flossie, who’s cooking the food together with her man, is doing it waaay too good, and I think I’m gaining 100 gram per hour. Ha ha.
When you go to a destination, you always have a time window. There’s always a date when you have to go home. Sometimes you kill it within that timeframe, and sometimes you don’t. That’s the name of the game… We got some good stuff in Haines, but not as much as we wanted. Just a little bit of bad luck with mini-injuries in the group, and too much sun, is enough to make difference between success and mediocre.
Enough of the whining! I’m back in Euroland now. Sitting in Zurich Airport and waiting for my skis, that didn’t make the same flight as me… Engelberg didn’t have the same problem as AK, since it seems like it have been snowing a lot there! So, stoked to ski tomorrow after sitting on my ass for ten days!
Three weeks ago, I had a couple of sweet days with Xavier de le Rue and the TimeLine muppets in Engelberg. Here’s their new episode, where Tero and Xavier goes through how a heli day is… done. It was good times! Good snow, but a bit unstable. Fun though, and that’s the most important thing! Here’s the video and some shots from Tero Repo:
Just had two sweet days in Engelberg with Xavier, Tero and Guido. One day in the resort, and one day with heli. Snow was really good, but there was a layer that broke easy, so we were mostly shredding smaller stuff. So fun though!
Now I just landed in Stockholm. Booked yesterday, and flew 06.50. Gonna be good to meet Bea, eat some semla and maybe visit the fly fishing exhibition!
So we celebrated with some beers at Ski Lodge Engelberg of course.
Glad to connect my phone my car. Not to stoked about the time though…
