Why i love Innsbruck

Went up to the Seegrube today. Was supposed to be a spot check for tomorrow, but turned out quite differently once i meet Julia on the slope. Just enjoyed the sun, and we even found some good snow.

And this morning, when i left at my house, someone made my day! Ran directly into this one (sometimes it's the little things that make you smile):

Wondering what the title means? Don't know what a Zipflbob is? Check here : Had the opportunity to take event photos at the Zipflbob-Nightcross last Saturday. Was quite funny to watch some nuts sliding down a steep ski piste with a mind-boggling speed, trying to not hit the obstacles in their way (like other contestants, or the gates :-) ). Afterwards a freeride show took place, with some bikers going over a kicker. Above pic was taken with 2 flashes, one from the camera left, warmed with a gel, and one from camera right....

Winter time Isar trails

These trails are fabulous right now. Frozen rock hard, plenty of grip and bone dry. Photo shows Max Schumann flowing along just south of the Tierpark.

Schafreuter (2101m)

Skied up here this afternoon with Markus. Light and visibility were f**king amazing :) Pic shows Markus just below the summit into his first couple of turns. Snow wasn't that great, Bavaria could really do with some more snow! Was fun anyway.

Point of View

Tried some POV photography the other day. Me chasing Matze between some trees. Not fully satisfied with the setup, but i think it got some potential.... I triggered with a remote which i hold in my left hand (therefore the cable...). See some more captures at

Step drop off, Isar Trails

Max Schumann showing how it's done today. Looks easy, huh? Try doing it when it's -4°C with an icy approach. Respect.

Isar trails, Munich

Photo shows Christian Schleker freeriding the Isar Trails, 4th January 2009, Munich. Was a cool 4hr ride with great trail conditions; minimal snow and plenty grip on the frozen surface.
