Saturday, October 17th!!!!!!?This is insane! In central Europe, more closely in Germany, we had 27 °C last week! Now it’ s around 2-5 only. Snowfall above ca 700 m!!!?I’ve been following the snow forecast the whole week. This morning I wanted to see how much it really was? I’ve done early season days in Spitzingsee (1 hour from Munich) before. That was, if it was early/mid November….?Of course the lifts are still closed, but the terrain is not rocky or anything. Perfect for getting the first snow experience not on an overcrowded, overpriced glacier resort.

I took a quick decision after checking the webcams and packed my stuff and hit the road. Just me, myself, and THE board for those days – Gyrator time!

look back

Touring skiers are faster on the way up, due to the tracks. They can’t beat a Gyrator on the way down though!

Rosskopf, peak 11.00 am, 1600 m; feeled temperature: -15° C
I hope winter will continue like this amazing kick off day!

Bridger Bowl Ski Area, Montana. a couple days ago

Bridger Bowl Ski Area, Montana. a couple days ago

As a bunch of monkeys throwdown some metal maneuvers in Seattle and a bunch of hippies go to bed early with morning plans of taking pow turns in many parts of the Rockies, you can’t help but feel the steady onslaught of winter……and it’s early October!! Here in Whitefish it’s been in the single digits the past couple nights and the snow-frosted upper bowls of Whitefish Mountain Resort at Big Mountain looming above the town has left the locals in quite an excitement. Red Lodge, Montana got forty inches of snow from one storm a few days ago and ski hills in Colorado are already open. Don’t bother counting the days.

K2 teams up with GIRLIE Camps

“Teaming up with Girlie camps is like two snowboard veterans going shred together. K2 and Girlie have been pushing women snowboarding for many years, so it’s making quiet sense to ally and take the same path in the future. We’re excited to support the original women’s snowboardcamps out there!”
The Girlie Camps with their new Partner K2 Snowboards will be hold during the Winter 2010 in the top ski destinations around Europe – Sälen, Laax and Les 2 Alpes. The Girls who participate can expect six days special mentoring through the K2 Team riders Julia Baumgartner and Ursina Haller. They will be also coaching the girls in the camps. The girls who participate can expect a lot of fun in the park as well as in the great freeride spots from the well-known areas. They will be shredding the whole day. Every participant will get some special Goodiebags from K2 and if we’re lucky the international Pro-riders Gretchen Bleiler and Leanne Pelosi will be visiting the Camps to give some advice to the Girls.
Dates for the Camps 2010
Sälen, SWE March 3th -7th 2010
Laax, CH March 7th-14th 2010
Laax, CH March 14th-21th 2010
Les 2 Alpes, FRA July 3th-10th 2010
