An over 50 hours boring travel brought me to a little paradise on earth, Gothic lodge from CMH. 4 days of pure relax & enjoy for body and soul. We started the days with yoga, then a delishes breakfast. At 9:00h we took the helicopter how brought us above the clouds to untracked beautiful mountains of British Columbia. Every day we flew up 10 different mountains, over 10.000 vertical meters a day. During the day we had good lunch on one of the untracked mountains. After heliboarding-skiing we went back to the lodge, straight in the hot tube with a cocktail, we rolled in the snow after the sauna and then again a very, very good meal. Thank CMH. See 20 pictures in my Gallery ‘pictures by Irian’.

After 4 days I went back to reality. I drove to Revelstoke for the competition, it is snowing since 4 days so we wait for better weather to ride the competition, probably Friday. I enjoy the snow with other riders, yesterday I broke out 10cm of the edge on my board. Too motivated riding I guess. Hope the local shop is able to repair my board.

I have two lines in my head. One very steep line with three cliffs, a tricky line because of sluff. One easier line with many cliffs, more relaxed riding. Both looks fun.

People in Revelstoke are extreme motivated in freeriding. Today there was a line from about 300 meter in front of the lift before the lift was even open. All because of new snow and a little bit of sunlight coming through.
