Powder Alert // Direction Austria

Since 2008, I am living in Verbier, Switzerland. This place is well know to be the meca of freeriding. I never  doubt my choice to live here, but in this shy begin of winter in switzerland, I am really not feeling at the right place to snowboard Powder. New years eve passed and the resolution of 2015 is to seek the good conditions where they are. Travelling, in the quest of virgin powder turn. My compagnons are and always have been in the past year Yan Hardy & Sébastien Baritussio. Together, we are sure to have the motivation to go anywhere and also to capture interesting contents, in photo & videos, on top of having a great time. For this first trip of 2015, as Verbier decided to quit winter for spring again, and the heavy rain destroyed the few hope we had left, we are heading to Austria. Our contacts at WePowder, advice us to go North-Est ; december have been interesting in this part of Europe, even if there is still stability issue, they got a better snow pack and while I am writing this words, massive snowflakes are dumping. So we are expecting a lot of faceshoot for the next few days… This trip is also for me the occasion to start my FWQ contest season with the Open face 3 stars in Axamer Lizum. Not a lot of riders got register for the event, a good occasion to score good points at the beginning of the season… I hope this travel to Austria will be as good as expected and we will show you soon some great Powder footage…
