FWT Chamonix

First day we arrived in Chamonix all lift stations were closed because of too much snow the day before... PERFECT ;)

The next day Mitch Tölderer, Xavier De Le Rue, Mathieu Crepel and me did some sick runs at "Le Brevent" before line check in the afternoon for next days competition. Well, contest was not perfect - super flat light, meaning bad visibility and I could not ride my line as planed. Upper part was good, some solide riding and clean drops but for the last feature in my run I had a bad feeling and decided not to do this double drop... ended up 6th place. No worries, I knew I can do better...

Same day in the evening we all moved to the other "sunny" side of Mont Blanc for the Courmayeur Event.

welcome to Chamonix...
