FWT Revelstoke #1

The 1st FWT event this season was held in Revelstoke, Canada. When we arrived it was snowing and we went straight up on the mountain the next morning. Riding was good even if slopes and backcountry get tracked fast. We had some days riding before contest and took the chance to check out all the tree runs you can reach.

Chris Schnabel, Flo Orley, Ursl Wohlschlager and myself

Contest face called "Mack face" is just next to the resort. We got a heli flight up there which gave us the chance to see more mountains i.e. lines around Revelstoke. Lots of terrain here!!

fasten your seatbelts

I was stoked about my line... first drop, some turns, next drop, don`t miss the entry to the very steep and narrow part of my line, one last drop and pointing the finish gate! yeaHH!! Level of competitors was high, Ralph Backstrom(USA) took the win. Congrats dude! I ended up 5th place.

me going fast finish area Sure I noticed that it`s snowing like hell back home in Austria and 2 days later I discovered already new lines in the tyrolean mountains, which were not possible to ride the last years because of snow conditions. Riding is on!!

Next FWT event Chamonix, 21.-25.01
