Salewa Soultrip, Pucòn/ Chile #3

Vulcano Villarrica, 2nd try...

Back to Pucòn/ Chile to hike up to the top of the Volcano Villarrica. One week ago we had bad weather conditions but this time everything went perfect... What a magic feeling to look into an active vulcano and smell the sulfur coming out of that huge hole!! Yeahhhhhhhhhh!!!!

Salewa Soultrip, Pucòn/ Chile #1

The first few days of our Salewa Soultrip we spent in Pucòn - Chile, a super nice village situated next to the active vulcano Villarrica. Twice we tried to hike up to the summit, but weather did not allow us to make it to the very top...

McFly, Björn, me and the Volcano Villarrica

Nevertheless the unique landscape here is impressive and we really enjoy our trip. Living in Andrè Sommers bus called "Bondi" makes us flexible to go were the best conditions are and gives us the possibility to stay up on the to the mountains and enjoy epic sunrises and beautiful sunsets... Life is good!!

Andrè Sommers "Bondi"

When we arrived in Santiago de Chile, we spend one day sightseeing with our friend Nico Demetrio who showed us around and had tasty chilean lunch(Pisco Sour, vino y mucho bife de lomo... mmmhhhhh). Later we took our flight to Temuco, where we met Andrè. Right now we had some good days in San Martin - Argentina. More including some pictures soon...

Summer in Austria #2

40cm of fresh snow made the decision easy - lets go and ride some powder!! Second time this "summer" we went up on Hintertuxer Glacier and had a super nice day... Check out the short VIDEO my shred buddy, Johannes "Joi" Hoffmann put together.

I'm also super happy to announce my new Sponsor SALEWA!! Together with the Salewa FreeSki Mountaineering Team - Martin "McFly" Winkler and Björn Heregger we gonna check out the Chilean and Argentinean backcountry for the next 3 weeks, starting on Thursday this week.
