Big Mountain Pro 2007

For the last 11 days we travelled with a bus through the Swiss and Italian Alps. I did a freeride competition with 7 other snowboarders and 8 skiers from all over the world. On the search for deep snow we rode one mountain in Courmayeur and 2 other peaks around Verbier. Helicopters flew us up the top and everybody chose his own line and way to ride down the mountain.

This was very new and exciting for me. Unfortunately the snow wasn't good. So the riding was quite difficult. But the trip was a hell lot of fun. Super cool people and for once I wasn't the oldest rider ;) 

I learned a lot about freeriding from the more experienced snowboarders and skiers. Some of their lines which they took coming down the mountain really impressed me.
