What's going on?

What's going on?

After bruising my knee in Schnalstal I took 10 days off from skiing and enjoyed the advanced springtime. I went to the Iseo lake and to the Garda lake for some relaxing days.

After that it was time to put the skis on again for the last days of the season. From April 29th to 31st I was part of the Disoriented Girls Camp as a coach. It was the first time that also Freeski girls were able to participate at this camp and I'm pretty sure it wasn't the last time. Here a few pics. Check also www.disoriented.com

I missed the group photo...

Straight after this me and Snowboard buddy Simon Gruber went to the Schöne Aussicht Hütte where the rest of the Smith Optics Team joined us for the annual shooting. As usual it turned out to be one of the coolest weeks of the season. Backyard jibbing, perfect park conditions and Arnaud Rougier, Markus Eder and me were also blessed with some late season pow turns. It would take too long to tell you all the details of this week. Thanks to Franz, Flo and Susi for making it possible.

This were my last days of the season. Now I'm at home waiting for the Schnalstal summer opening where I'll stay mostly before visiting Argentina in August with an Italian crew.

In the meantime we also did a little skate shot with some lokal riders in Bruneck and Harald Wisthaler a good photografer and friend. Here are some shots. Thanks Harry!

The Mega Update

Was pretty busy last month but here we go with a mega update:

1) Clickonthemountain Fotocontest was really cool and when I was on my way home my teammates called me and gave me the good news that we won!!

check out some pics we did:

first shot of the days.. me 180

landscapes were great every moment of the day

one of my favorite shots. thx Alo!

Check out more of the shots in the next 4skiers magazine coming out October/ November 2011
Once again thanks to Manuel Castelnuovo, our guide Luca Argentero and the rest of the guys involved in the Comp.


2) Straight after Courmayeur I packed my car and moved to Obereggen for the King of Iron rail Comp. The setup by F-Tech Constructions was really great and the session was pretty funny.

The canon tube was the heart of the setup

I did some good tricks but judges were of the opinion that it wasn't good enough to take top spot.
Here is a little edit of board.TV

3) 28th of March was arrival day of the Kronplatz F-Tech SPRINGgingerle 2011

We've been waiting for it for a while and finally the event kicked off.

Check out the podcasts once again. A full report of the event with pictures and video will be available on the main freeski platforms soon.

4) Straight after the Invitational McRae, Luka and me moved to Seiser Alm to enter the Red Bull Jib Ski Kings. Markus & Lukas Schäfer followed us later. We went to the Ridersmeeting on Saturday evening were we get invited to a fantastic dinner as well. After the bip-drow everyone went to bed tired.

Next day we checked out the course and it was superfun. Alex Berger designed a bunch of really creative obstacles and it was up to us to shred them properly. I made it to the final of the top 8 but my run was to less technical to reach the superfinal. At the end Markus Eder took the topspot of the podium in front of McRae Williams and Andreas Bacher.

check out the video of this unique event:

Hopefully we'll see this event next year as well, it was fun!


5) After this busy weeks I took a few days off and went to Innsbruck to meet up with my friends

Had some good days with you guys! Thanks


6) Last weekend it was time for the 5th F-Tech Shooting in Val Senales/ Schnalstal.

Needless to say that the park was simply great and lasershaped as usual. Unfortunately i bruised my knee on day2 when I went short on Big Bertha. Had to stop riding for the day and it sucked!!

I'm at home right now cause I've to rest for a few days to get my knee better. Partying, sunbathing an chilling.

Hope you enjoyed the update. Check back for more!

Click the mountain, Courmayeur 2011

driving from Torino to Courmayeur

The last 4 days I was in Courmayeur doing a BC - Foto Comp. It was superfun and we were lucky with the weather whole week. Today on 12.30 we have to hand out a fotobook with 30 pics and Alessandro Belluscio our fotografer is working hard to edit all the stuff.

On Tuesday we had a preemeeting in the museum of the guides where we got all the infos reguarding the following days.

On wednesday than we went on the mountain early in the morning to check out some spots. Conditions wern't perfect but we found powder every now and than.

hiking early in the morning...

...to catch some good lines

On day2 we went to the Monte Bianco cableways. We didn't want to loose to much time and ski down all the way to Chamonix (Valle Blanche) so we decided to do some shots on the Thoula glacier.

little break over 3,000m above the sea

After that we returned to the Courmayeur resort to do some night jibbing action.

Day3 was great. We took the Heli in the morning to "montfortain". At the beginning it was a bit scatchy as the snow conditions were not too save but we found a few lines and cliffs wich turned out pretty fun and the shots are amazing.

Hi, let me give you a little update on what's going on..
Currently I'm in Livigno shredding the Mottolino park with my friends. My shoulder is hurting a little so I've to be careful. On Tuesday I will leave for Courmayeur to enter a bc-foto comp with Alo, Ach and a snowboarder I don't know yet. Pretty sure we'll have good times there.

In the meantime last work for our invitational is coming up. Check the riders&media list and the flyer below.



The first table is just finished I think F-Tech Constructions did an amazing job till now!! Judge for yourself.

Prato Nevoso & Livigno Nissan Shooting

3 weeks ago we packed our stuff and went to Prato Nevoso. Every year the whole italian snowboard and freeski scene comes back to shred together for the first time in the season on real snow. There was also kinda relaxed contest where we got cash for every stylish and good trick. Cool format.

Here is a little edit from a friends filmer (I still didn't managed to edit my stuff out)

Of course we had a nice party after the action and once again props are going to Gherry for organizing such a good event. Thanks a lot.

After shredding in Prato Nevoso I went to Livigno with my friends Martin Premstaller and Andreas Bacher for a little shooting for the Sky program "Nissan - The quest". Unfortunately the park wasn't open yet so we had to be creative to get something done. Our friend Raffaele Cusini showed us some bikepark spots and so we could do at least some jib action.

After that we had to do some interviews but then we had an amazing dinner on the top of the Mottolino resort. I love Pizzoccheri, bresaola and the good wine of the Valtellina ;-)

interview time

look at this cool Nissan Navara

Of course we had time for some drift action on the parking as it was snowing a lot the days before ;-)


All in all we had a good trip once again and it was superfun to see all the people after a few time.

See you soon...
