TV show

Next two days I will ride with RTL4, dutch TV program, and I’ll coach a dutch freerider to ride Freeride competitions and ride a Freeride World Qualifier with him. Soon You’ll see me on TV 😉

Last week I’ve been guiding and riding with Jeremy Jones and his crew. We slept on a mountain hut and had great powder. Super nice crew, good riders and lots of fun:

Crazy winter

One day the mountains are covert in the deepest pow and two days later they are covered in ice. It is not always easy to find the best powder. But after 15 years of exploring, training, education and lots of experience, I love the challenge to make the best out of what the mountains have to offer. And this winter they offer us a lot. Nature is great! RESPECT THE NATURE.

With Bas Elhorst as colleague guide and Pow Hunter Truck from ELOOA we traveled south to find the best powder. This bus has space for about 20 persons. Great photos made by Alex Papis (www.alexpapis.com).

My line choice camp at 20 january was… deepest powder of the winter so far. We had nonstop untracked powder of best quality so there was not much time to check our lines 😉
For more Camps see ‘Camps’ above.

what a freerider needs

What makes me love freeriding so much? It is cruising the endless untracked open powder fields, big powder sprays, steep and technical lines, silence and beauty at the top of a mountain, exploring new areas, and sharing the fun with friends and guests.
This winter I have had it all and the winter just started. You find me often in Montafon, because every area got its own specialty, let the photos show you what I mean. This is freeriding in Gargellen:

10 days of meditation

This month my girlfriend and I did a meditation course called Vipassana. In total silence we were only concentrated on ourselfs, 10 days, 10 hours a day. No phone or other distraction, men and women separated.

I hear you thinking: What is your motivation and goal of the meditation?
Well, the way I would explain it is that with Vipassana meditation you get rid of unconscious stored negative emotions. During the meditation you can feel that you get rid of them.
Another reason is that you expand your consciousness, not only during the meditation but also during everyday life. You become more aware of your social and anti-social behavior, you lose stress and anger which eventually leads to more happiness. These are for me some of the reasons why this meditation course is so enriching.

For some people it sounds extreme but I think there is nothing extreme about it. Of course it is a bit strange not to talk and sit the whole day. You need some perseverance; 130 persons out of 140 finished the 10 day course, with a big smile and a great experience for their life.

After my return I got rewarded with lots of deep powder.
