The big Show down – Open Faces Hochgurgl Obergurgl 4* 2017

At the start I just wanted to run. Run away, take that Snowboard and walk down this mountain. Didn’t wanna disappoint myself another time.

More explanations you can find in the great feature from Heinz Reich of the Austrian Radio Station FM4 HERE. Besides covering interesting topics, they are also playing really fantastic music most of the time. As close to perfection, as radio can get.

But, back to the competition: Somehow I kept it together, found my line, landed on rocks and stomped it, didn’t crash doing those turns on the super catchy snow and went with an okay speed.

And I just won. Still can’t believe it, can’t believe, that I actually made it again. Dropping off the Freerideworldtour and requalifying in the same year. I’m prepared for another season full of joy and craziness, full of great moments and real friendships.
