FWT #6 Verbier Xtreme/ SUI

YESSSSSSSSSS!! Finally I also made it to the podium at the FWT Final Verbier Xtreme!! So stoked!! Congrats to Douds Charlet - World Champion 2012

Verbier Xtreme 2012 "Best of"

Conditions on Bec des Rosses this year were tricky, not so much snow but even more rocks just covered with a bit of snow. I decided to go for a fluid line with taking some drops all the way down - it worked out pretty well and after two times taking 4rd place(2009, 2011) I got a 3rd place at the most important Freeride Contest we have! It`s hard to tell what that means to me, specially because I had already to deal with several injuries and now still being able to compete with the world best freeriders is just great! A big dream coming true!!

In the Overall ranking I finished now in 4th position.

Next week I`m going to Alaska with my friends Dani "Burger" Regensburger, Zlu "Zlotti" Haller and Otto "Oz" Lantschner. Haha. Good times about to come, for sure!! Oh yeaHHHH

Beside Heli time we wanna hike some serious stuff and I will compete in FLOW Tailgate Alaska! It`s gonna be sick!!

FWT #5 Fieberbrunn/ AUT

FWT Fieberbrunn - what a great event!! The Freeride World Tour is growing each year, but the contest in Austria is outstanding! The local organizers put all their efforts to make the best they can - so it is!

The contest venue is great, steep in the upper section and more playfull further down. Spectators just have to take the gondola to the very top and from the event village you have a perfect view on the "Wildseeloder" north face. About 3000 people came over there, even more for the prizegiving later at the valley station of the gondola.

Luckily it snowed the day before face check, so we got excellent conditions. Pretty much everybody could show a good run, I`m also quite happy about my line. I went for the lookers right side with a solid drop in the steep section and some more airtime in the rest of my run. All clean and fast, but ended up 7th place. I also judged competitions and know, it`s not an easy job sometimes. After a good beginning this season and not so good results in the last two events I`m in 6th place Overall, meaning qualified for Verbier Xtreme and already for next years FWT!! The big goal now is to make it to the podium in Verbier!!

Today we were filming for our project "Time for the whiteroom" and got some nice runs! There is still a lot to do, if enough motivation for hiking - and YES, we are motivated!!

Some more impressions the weekend...
