Jib4beer Tobias Vinatzer Invitaional went down Saturday 11th 2010. I was sure we'll spend good times there and so it was. After a good preparty on Friday at Luislkeller with lot of beer, buring hats, parking problems the morning after and bad bad hangovers we finally started the jib session in Tobi's backyard. After 1 hour of qualification these 8 riders went on to the KO final.
In the end Flo Geyer came out on top winning another 10 beers followed by young gun Juri Silvestri (he kicked me out in the quarter finals). The 3rd spot went to Daniel Tschurtschenthaler and 4th to Lukas Schäfer.
big ups to Tobi and his mother for making this event possible and we are all looking forward to come back next year!!!

It was superfun to be part of it and I have to say thank you to my buddy Matthias Leitner. The whole weekend was amazing. Started with the wellness on Friday evening it went on with some railskiing on the Kitzsteinhorn on Saturday morning. In the afternoon then we had the ridersmeeting and the Comp started in the evening in front of a good crowd cheering for the riders. Unnecessary to say that the party was the banger and we all had tons of fun.

after a long time without posting anything here is a little update..
I've been in Stubai and Hintertux few times in October before heading to Modena where I was for the Skipass expo and to enter a Big Air Comp. I sucked a bit during the comp but my friend Markus ended up 2nd and took some money home! Be sure to check out his brandnew blog!
After Modena I went to Schnalstal which is home of the superhot Gentlemenriders Nitro Park (who was there in summer knows what I mean). I helped out the guys there to shape a little bit and found the time to shred some early season pow.
Last weekend then I spent my time in the park shredding with my snowboard buddies Marco Concin, Max Stampfl and Daniel Neulichedl. Here are some covershots ;-)
Hopefully I'll be able to post more stuff in the coming weeks. Till then..
have fun out there!

The first italian Invitational is over and it was a success. From the 30th of March to the 3rd of April some of the best european skiers and newcomers gathered on our home mountain Kronplatz to hit some cool obstacles prepared and shaped by F-Tech Snowpark Constructions.
Even if the weather wasn’t as good as it normally is at this time the crew was motivated and ready to shred.
After inspecting the the gap-kicker the riders went up to hit it while filmers and photographers moved in position to get their shots. Unfortunately the fog made it impossible to keep jumping after 3 or 4 test jumps and everyone went up to the park container again to get lunch. It was once again grillmaster Alex Berger to get the food ready for about 20 people. The afternoon was still very cloudy but the plan was to stay on the mountain for some night action. Riders used the time to jib around in the snowpark which offers endless rail combinations and other
stuff. After having dinner at the „Kron“ restaurant it was time to get the first serious shots done. The setup by night was just amazing and by the way the F-Tech guys did a really good job. Check out the pictures. Roy Kittler was for sure the rider of the night as he didn’t stop throwing the hottest tricks even if all the others had enough. At midnight everyone went down with the gondola tired but stoked.
First Day was pretty intensive so most of the riders decided to go on the mountain not too early. Right decision since the weather sucked all day long. It was time for some jib action again. After having some beers in the park all the people went to the hotel again. In the evening we made it to an ice hockey game in Bruneck. The HC Pustertal had to win against HC Asiago for getting on in the playoffs and there couldn’t have been better supporters then our crew. All together we cheered for the Wolves and they won. The match was over and all hurried up to reach the hotel soon to get some sleep but not before an improvised snowball fight at the parking. Mellow day but next morning there was a sunrise shooting on the timetable...
Alarmclock at 3.30am. Breakfast and a 30 min. drive to get on the other side of the mountain where a snowcat picked us up. The shaping crew was already on top to prepare the jump. When we arrived to the park we could still see stars on the dark sky which was super cool as we should get a perfect sunrise. The light was perfect and we started hitting the jump. The snowcat brought us up after every lap and the session was on. We continued sessioning for about 2 hours before we got our second breakfast this morning. Weißwurst and Weißbier was the right thing after the
early action. In the afternoon we still had to shred the canonbox so some of us went to the park again to get this done. Pretty cool obstacle as well and Markus Eder was on fire with some misty 450’s and 630’s off. Still tired of the past days we find our way to the hotel again to get ready for the evening. We planed a dinner at the Kron4 Restaurant with the whole crew. The dessert wasn’t a usual one as we had to try out the polish wodka brought by Marek and Wojtek. That was defenitely the kick off for the rest of the night. Down to Bruneck with the taxi we checked out nearly all the pubs and discos the city can offer. When it was about 2.30 am all the riders were done and only Johannes Drexl managed it to keep partying with the italian machines Raffaele Cusini and Matthias Fabbro till late. Big ups! Sebi Geiger was on a good way but had to give up on the last part of the night. Amazing boys!

Only a bunch of riders left for the concluding day of our event. Some mellow runs turned out pretty fun and the Photografers got their last shots. Little shooting on the rainbowbox over the gondola and chilling ‘till afternoon
We would like to say thanks to everyone involved in this thing and we promise you that it wasn’t the last Invitational here in Italy. Thanks to Kronplatz Skiresort, Skirama, Tourist Association Bruneck, F-Tech Snowpark Constructions and all the other supporters. Cya next year with some fresh ideas!!

Currently I'm in Campo Felice near Rome to do some filming for Nissan. There's almost no snow so we have to be creative to get at least some usable shots. After riding me and my friend Marco Concin decided to try out some stuff with the GoPro Cam and my Nissan. Unfortunately the police didn't find it was as funny as we thought... ;-) check out the video.
Yesterday night we checked out the city a little bit. There was the football game Roma- Inter and Roma won. Check out this video as well.

Tomorrow I'll drive back all the way home (750 km!) to do the last work for our Invitational. So see you all soon at Kronplatz!

I've been two times in Livigno during the past weeks and I must say that the kicker line there is very cool. Even if I only jumped on the L line because of the wind the first time and beacause of the River Jump Comp on the XL line the second time, it was very funny. I also had the opportunity to meet up with my friends I haven't seen for a time and obviously to do some party with'em.
We also had tons of fun at the Passo San Pellegrino a few days later due to the fresh powder fallen there. So watch the edit and check back for more stuff!

Stay tuned for some action!
