couloir

Last 2 weeks where amazing, even with the little snow we had.

Together with my two freeride buddies Christian Schnabel and Bas Elhorst I have been riding deep pow in Italy and some serious steep terrain from 1400 vertical meters.

Other days I have been hiking. Yesterday I made a big tour with Mikaela Hollsten and Timo Hemeler. We climbed a via ferrata to the Vordere Rendelspitze. From there we ride all a nice couloir into the Hintergebirge. From there we used our splitboards to hike up to Lattejoch. Behind Lattejoch we went for a coffee and apfelstrudel in Kappl. While we were eating our Apfelstudel I was checking the photos from lines we saw on our hike. A view minutes later I knew I need to ride that couloir from Lattejoch.

One hour later I stood on top of the couloir. The last sunlight of the day shone in the couloir. Severalchamoisran alongthe couloir down the mountain. I dropped in the super steep couloir and found deep powder. The best and one of the longest couloirs I ever had been riding.

On the photo you see the first part of it.
