Qualification day

Today was the qualification of the eurocup. The weather has been and is still super nice, nearly perfect conditions to ride a competition, even though it has been windy for a short time.
The pipe was shaped pretty good considering both pipe dragons broke down the day before yesterday.




Awesome weather!



Stood up early in the morning and the moon was still shining, too early!



Crowded startgate just before the training




Snowcat transportation action!



I screwed up my first run and started my second one super nervous.
But I landed the second one, even though I am content with myself the run did not suffice to get me into the finals.

After the competition I took a few fun runs through the park with the two german teammembers Johannes Höpfl and Linus Birkendahl.

Some hang out and sleeping time after the competition




Tomorrow I'm heading back to my hometown Innsbruck.
The two weeks in Saas Fee were very nice, but I'm also glad to have a free weekend now, so I can finish my schoolstuff, even thought this isn't that much fun.

Just have some problems with getting my stuff in my bag,


but it worked out in the end :)

Training day at Saas Fee

Today the weather has been super awesome again, really fortunate, because tomorrow the European Cup Qualification's on. So finally we could get back on the mountain and the competition pipe was ready to get shred.
Super nice!

Bluebird!




Focusing?



Noouuuu!



Somehow both pipe-dragons of Saas Fee broke down yesterday while they were shaping the pipe, but even though the pipe has been really nice today.






After the training I couldn't detain myself from doing a powderrun! The pow was super nice today, unfortunately I wasn't the only one to recognize that, but it has been awesome anyway!



Enjoy!

Saas Fee 2

I'm still in Saas Fee preparing for the European cup there. I'm staying with the ÖSV (the Austrian Snowboard Team). It's really nice beeing here, even though the weather is changing all the time.
Today we went to Visp and spent the afternoon walking through Visp and shoot some photos.

Saas Fee 1

I'm going to spend the next two and a half weeks in Saas Fee to train and compete in the Europcup. Our flat is super awesome it has nice little fold-away beds in the middle of kitchen and living room.




The park is nice, the pipe could be better but it's good too.





Still I'm having a good time shredding again.
I'm super motivated and I'm ultra happy to be able to follow my passion again.





Crevasses!!
