yesterday was spent making first tracks on powder cat ski italy's mt, somebodys got to do it!
A short time lapse from the K2 Bunker
Yesterday I walked up the mountain with Bibo, we took some photos and a video or two. The difference a week makes is amazing.
Good morning and what a lovely day its turning out to be. You know its a good day when you wake up to the sound of snow ploughs. The weather forecast is suggesting that if were lucky we might get a metre or so in the next 72 hrs.....that would be awesome!
wakey wakey hands off snakey
This is the view this morning from the center of Sauze D'Oulx. It has snowed only a dusting 10cm max, however its very cold -10 at 7am. The sky is so clear and everything is white so it should be a glorious day, i'm off to clear the dehor of obstructions for our "urban" spot.
I love this pre-season end of Autumn begining of the Winter, its so quiet here, Its just so cool watching the Mountain change its colours.
So yesterday myself and Bibo decided the setup for the Powder Stash this oncoming winter at Powder Catski Italy. The Powder Stash an off piste/ backcountry snowpark. 3 lines Easy, Medium and Pro of 8 - 12 structures in sequence following the natural contours of the mt. The Powder Stash is an area for aspiring Sportsmen/women and Shredders of a good standard to practise new tricks taking advantage of the perfectly shaped kickers (by hand and by snowcat) into powder landings, once the powder is used up on the landing, the landings are groomed and the Powderstash is a normal snowpark. allowing you to take your tricks to the next level. Gnarrly right.
One of the landings about 3/4 of the way down the Powder Stash
This is about as Urban as we get at Powder Cat Ski Italy, were thinking jump from the dehor/patio and gap the rail to a nicely prepared landing.
