Phew, finally an office day! Did not think I would ever utter those words but to be honest it feels pretty nice to have a full day off where I’m not skiing, building jumps, getting burnt by the sun (damn high pressure), or driving through the alps. Not complaining, but these last few days have been long and heavy, but on the good side of things we have gotten a lot done! Been skiing Engelberg and Verbier the last 3 days with my brother and we have been crushing it, feels so good to be stacking shots for yet another Unfiltered Skiing episode. Speaking of which, episode 3 – “The Backyard”, is releasing next week! Can’t wait to show all of you what we got up to in Chamonix this winter!
It’s weird, it’s only mid march but it feels like the season is coming to an end! It’s 20°C outside in Verbier today, and you can pretty much hear the snow melt. This high pressure system that’s been all over the alps over the last two weeks has been pretty brutal to the snowpack, and we have seen some nasty slides, all the way to the ground. To play it safe we have stayed off the big stuff, and focused on what I think many of you will appreciate, building jumps and jibs in the slushy snow. If the weather forecasts aren’t lying again, it looks like something good is on it’s way though…hold your thumbs for next week!
Took out the 5D today to get some shots around our house here in Verbier, huge shout-out to Felix and his crew at Powder-Extreme for letting us stay here!
Felix’ beautiful house in Bruson, opposite of Verbier. Full on spring time down here!
The Bruson gondola. Some fun looking terrain above it but definitely a no-go in these temps.
Verbier view. Feeling bad for everyone doing the FWT finals on saturday, Bec de Rosses is looking pretty thin on the snow side of things…
Summer is close! Not sure if I’m ready yet…
Normally I’m opposed to showing too much of what we have been shooting for an episode, but I’m making an exception here and decided to throw a bunch of screenshots your way. Here’s some of what to expect from Unfiltered Skiing episode 4:
In Engelberg we enjoyed staying at the swede-owned Ski Lodge. Some of the best vibes out of any place I’ve stayed in the alps, I can highly recommend a visit!
Brothers in crime! Oscar thought he was going on a powder trip, maybe next time!
Jump building, one of my favorite parts of skiing. I feel like a kid with a spade and a bucket, creating happiness in the snow. Good times!
The good old backflip goggle and hat drop.
rock’n'roll skiing, spring time goodness.
Daniel is about to get the cover shot, and he knows it.
Oscar getting the shot of me flipping and spinning.
Walking home long after the lifts have closed, with some A-shots in the bag. The best feeling in the world!
In Verbier conditions were even warmer so we opted for some park skiing with pow skis. First day in the park for me this season!
fun little switch 7.
F*cking over and out! Stay tuned for the next episode!
