If you’ve already been at the Hochjoch ski area, you’ll probably wonder what’s special about the Zamangspitze as it is easy accessible from the slopes even with bad snow conditions. What makes it special is the downhill to St. Gallenkirch and not the east face back to the gondola. The exposition of this route is – unfortunately – southern. There’re … Read More
#The bucket list. Part 2: Valluga West at the Arlberg
Oh yeah, winter 17/18 definitely had a very stable snowpack. So it was obvious we had to put it in good use with a special run at the Arlberg, the Valluga. Every good skibum there has to ride the legend at least once. Why it took us 5 years is explained quite easy: Every time we set a date to … Read More
#The bucket list. Part 1: Madrisella Couloir at Montafon
Over the last years we found a lot of runs, we wanted to try. But in the first years we lacked the courage and in the last years we never had the right snow conditions. And so these runs added up to a little bucket list. And finally, with winter 2017/2018 we got a chance to cross some of them … Read More
#Support your Hero 2.0, Mountain Rescue Service Charity.
About this time last year we launched a charity to raise money and attention for the local Mountain Rescue Service in Schruns-Tschagguns in the Austrian Montafon Valley. We wanted to tell the people about the responsible and completely voluntary work of those guys (and gals!). The best way for us was a t-shirt crowdfunding campaign, because we already do mountain … Read More
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. Via ferrata St. Anton
Okay, I tell you one of my secrets: I’m afraid of heights. It got me into little trouble in the mountains several times now. Or should I say, it puts me into a sudden and uncontrollable instant-panic-mode? Bam. What a bummer for a freerider you may think. And it is… big time. So why of all things am I still … Read More
Thank you. You’re the best. Mountain Rescue Charity.
WOW, thank you so much for your amazing support for our charity project. It’s such a great success. You did that and raised (by now) the amount of 1.200 Euros for the Mountain Rescue Service in Schruns-Tchagguns (Montafon/Austria). Awesome! If nothing else we’re proud of the appreciation for our idea and the effort we’d put into it for making it … Read More
When I put my race-car into hibernation two weeks ago, I never anticipated that I sort of swapped it with my old race-carvers. Not sure of that decision yet. The expectations were great for this winter. Probably too great. Back in the mountains, we already waxed our skis, bought the first seasons pass (yes, we normally need two different ones), … Read More
Support your Hero
Sometimes we like to call the mountains our playground, but what if the fun and games suddenly turn serious? Ever thought about it? Actually, it’s pretty simple to get yourself in an emergency. A stupid crash, getting lost, aprupt change in the weather pattern or the mother of all nightmares: an avalanche occurs. If you can’t proceed any further without … Read More
That's one small step with the skis, one giant leap for the skier.
People often ask us, why we are freeriders, why we like skiing off-piste. I don’t know a simple answer. Maybe we like the adventure in finding our own way down? The call of freedom? Shredding freshies? Eventually we got bored on the pistes, and at least when they get really crowed during main season, we just feel safer leaving them … Read More
Do more of what makes you happy.
You ever known that feeling, nearly bursting with joy? Grinning at each other on top of a hard earned peak gets me there. Or shredding deep pow while it is still puking on a deep winters day. I have no idea why, but it makes me insanely happy. You think, it’s because there is stuff like endorphines and adrenaline involved? … Read More
If you can dream it, you can make it.
What was planned for one season only developed into a new and functional way of life. But let’s start in the beginning: There was this dream, a dream of just skiing and nothing else for months – yeah, months as in plural – best in the Rockies. So much skiing, that maybe we get tired of it for a little … Read More
