Freeride weekend in Austria

Between March 5 and 8, 2010, I went with bunch of people around Přerov to Austria. The beginning of the trip was funny for me, because I know them only through car-share offer on friendly web powderline.cz and few e-mails. Finally, everything came out great, people, snow and even the weather.

Sunny and powder snow in Italy - Foppolo 2010

There is not enough snow in our home mountains Beskydy, so we have started to look for the higher mountains, and especially with more snow. The choice fell on Italy, mainly due to the affordability of housing, snow hight and cheap wine. Foppolo skiing resort, which is above Bergamo, none of us know, but Google Earth promised good lines.

Saturday's trip for some snow at Chopok, Slovakia

Since the depth of snow in the Beskydy Mountains is critical for alpine touring / freeride, we decided to go to Slovakia on Saturday January 23. The server laviny.sk shows Chopok (Nizke Tatry) 90cm, so there is no problem. That’s plan but we hope that the site is right, otherwise our skis the will be cut like chips. In the end everything turned out well.

Beginning of skialp/freeride season at Chata pod Rysmi

From 26 to 30 December 2009 classic winter mountaineering camp was held by 155th HO Vsetín. Chata pod Rysmi was chosen as a place of action. Although we are not members, we participated at this event. Weather forecast changed almost every hour and the Christmas rain did not bode well, so the result seems to be at least uncertain, particularly with regard to the freeride riding in powder.

Skialpinism and freeride Ukraina 2009

Between 13 and 21 March I spend time by skiing at Ukraine. The first idea was from my friend Palič, and he agreed with CK Alpina at Zakarpatskou Ukrajinu v zimě for the trip. At the beginning it seems, that we are alone for skimountaneering, but we met two guys from 155. HO Vsetín Petr Šiška, Joséfek and daughter of Petr Šiška. The rest of the group are people from all parts of Czech Republic, including brainless guys from the capital city.

Skimountaneering boots Scarpa Spirit 4

I was looking for hard boots for skimountaneering, freeride and jumps last year. After some time of searching I have found Scarpa Spirit 4. I have no experience with other types of boots, so that following text is only my personal experience with Scarpa Spirit 4.

Muse and valuation of binding NAXO NX21

I have been using this binding for last season on my K2 Seth’s and now it’s time to reviewed it. I bought it last year because of good results on freeskiing websites and also good experiences of freeskiers all around the world, which I read in comments on pages.
