The winter had a abrupt end because of the Corona Virus. I hope you and your family are fine! Anyway… The winter was great again, with many adventures, some perfect powder, some rain, windstorms and beautiful sunny touring conditions. Hereby some images of the winter. December started good with fresh powder on high altitude.
January was super good, a bit of powder but most of the time sunshine and perfect touring conditions in high altitude. So I hiked and rode new mountains, I delivered avalanche safety trainings and found enough powder for every day 🙂
My girfriend and I were looking for some weeks with very good food, great mountain landscapes, and not many tourism. She wanted to hike, I wanted to bike. So we chose the route of the GTA (Grand Traverse della Alps) in Italy. We had snowfall, rain, fog and sunhine…
I prefer Europe to Japan with the easy accessible beautiful mountains. I like all weather conditions with all their challanges. This season so far we even had better snow than in Japan 🙂 Fotos by: Marcel Loschin, Maurice Mommen and Eric Verbriest. Rider: Irian
In five weeks traveling and surfing in Sumatra I realised (again) how free in mind the people in Indonesie are! They are rarely concerned about things that are not worth it to being concerned about. The opposit as we do in Europe…
Preparing for upcoming winter. Where do I wanna go? What are my next adventures? To find the answer you think about the adventures of the past, and let inspier yourself by adventures of others. So hereby some inspiration, memories of last winter.
I felt in love with the Lofoten. After a beautifull Skitour, we had great freeriding down till the beach and after that we ‚ve been surfing till all the power was gone. For me this was one of the highlights of the winter!
One of my best skitouring I did in the Lofoten in Norwegian. It is a magic place! Last april I stayed in the Lofoten for two weeks, one with guests and one week with my girlfriend. One week with perfect weather and one week it was cloudy, but I enjoyed both weeks the same.
We stayed in a nice house middle in the nature with 360 degrees terrace and amazing view. Sunset is in April at 23:00 h. so we could chill at the terrase and watch sunset till it was time go to bed. Something very strange but nice during winter-sport holidays.
Hiking with a view over the ocean and little steep islands around is magnificent, these picture are made by Eric Verbiest.
