Winter 2010

Looking back to a good winter with great trips to different places, sick runs, lot of fun together with my friends up in the mountains and some really good results in the Freeride World Tour:

FWT Ranking Overall 7th

FWQ Ranking Overall 1st

Check it out, if you didn't see yet!! Droping a 100m highway bridge into climbing rope!!

FIRST HIKE at home mountains in october, powder conditions deluxe!!

MORE HIKES around Innsbruck together with Alex Hoffmann, DCR, Joggl Zangerl... BIG!!

FWT RUSSIA - postponed to Chamonix due to weather conditions. A real "Russian adventure" including two days with deep powder runs. Crazy Vodka party in a nice club in Sochi... byla altìtschna!

FWT CHAMONIX, FRA - 2nd place!! Great conditions at the contest face and a nice run took me on the podium. Good week and powder days at Brèvent ski resort.

FWQ ENGADINSNOW, St. Moritz - podium again 3rd place!! My mountain after winning here 2008? I like the Corvatsch north face!!

FWQ FIEBERBRUNN, AUT - 1st place!! Winning in Austria was a big goal and with a good line I could realize making it on top of the podium.

FWT SQUAW VALLEY, USA - Burger time! the "american way of life" with my travel buddys Mitch Tölderer, Häusl Stefan and Lori Huber. Just awesome, even if we could not ride the mystical Tram face because of security reason and I didn't do very well on the Silverado face. Nice californian tree runs the days after.

FWQ NENDAZ, SUI - 1st palce OVERALL Freeride World Tour Qualification with 228 ranked riders from all over the world.

STEEPS CHAMONIX, FRA - riding the "Jäger couloir" from Mt. Blanc du Tacul and some others... Good french vine and food in Chamonix mmmhhhhhh

FILMING for Arlberg TV together with Häusl Stefan and Geli. Twice we hiked up a sick face and after interview in the "green box"

FWT VERBIER, SUI - Run1: solid and save, canceled due to weather conditions. Run2: really good and super fast run, droping the Hollywood cliff sidewise but a stupid mistake at the lower part, not clean, 8th place. Great week in Verbier with all the "old stars" from 15 years Verbier Xtreme. Lot of party...

BIG Thänx to all my Sponsors for supporting me living my dream of riding POWDER all over the world!!
