Finally Splitboarding! Kloben tour May 5, 2016

Splitboard Tour Kloben from Fuschertörl 5. Mai 2016
with: Chris Hesselbach, Clemens Hiller, Philip Volker, Michi Riepl

I was actually pretty happy to hear that my riding buddies were thinking about arranging a splitboard tour, now that the winter snowboard season is technically over. We have had a trying winter which didn’t even begin until some time in February. There were only a couple of great powder days, as either the winds or the elevated...

FWQ 3* Morgins Freesession: February 20th 2016

The Wild Wild West Adventure Final episode - FWQ 4* Subaru Freeride Series Big Sky Montana: April 2nd-7th

April 7th: The morning started out with the roar of the avalanche blasting in the background. Today is my last day here and I can feel the nostalgia creeping in already as I have been having fun hanging out with the locals here, meeting likeminded people is always great. I guess my sore feet will be appreciating a short break in boarding but my heart will sorely miss my new made friends here.
I had plans to meet up with some more local riders, Corey and Jacob, as arranged the night of the party. Jacob couldn’t make it but Blair had time again which was cool. I met up with the guys...
