Here’s a few shots from last season riding at Kaltenbach, Austria just before I injured my ankle.
Last week i headed over to Kaltenbach which is just down the road from Mayrhofen and i entered the Zillertal Valley Ralley competition. The weather wasn’t great but i managed to stomp a back double 1080 in my run which won me 1st Place. I was surprised with the level of riding and it really made me step up and do bigger tricks. Overall it was a fun day and a nice competition, the next stop is at Zillertal Arena so i’m looking forward to taking part in another event.
Last season season my friend Jon Moy from Life Cinematic came to Mayrhofen and filmed with me and Sam Turnbull for 2 days. We didn’t have a lot of time to get footage but luckily the weather was on our side and we ended up getting some really good shots.
In April i got the train from Mayrhofen to Meribel and joined the DC team there for shred days. Continue reading
So i based myself in Mayrhofen, Austria this winter, you might have read my post about living in a caravan for the winter.
I thought i would post a few pictures of the resort, i really enjoyed being there this winter and felt like i progressed a lot.
I got to travel around Europe quite a bit, visiting Davos & Laax in Switzerland and Meribel in France.
Below is a picture of the Penken Park in Mayrhofen, Continue reading
So people its been a while and i now have good enough internet to smash through some blog updating to here goes 😀
So to start off i have decided to go to Europe this season for a change and hit up some comps out there instead of returning to the states for the season. Now here comes the Big one…… Im braving it in a CARAVAN!!! Yes your read that right i said caravan. Its a bit different to the big houses and sharing with lots of people but lets face it times are hard even with working all summer money has been a real struggle so we are trying a new approach. Now heres the thing accommodation in Breckenridge whilst staying with 6 people still set me back around £1300 yeah pretty steep and thats not including the £600 flights, the transfer and the lift pass etc.So with that in mind when i found that i was only paying €500 for 6 months on the campsite i was pretty happy yes i will have to pay some extra bills at the end of the season for gas and electricity but its not going to cost me anywhere near the same as the state. You might say what about the price of a caravan? Well i have a friend call Gaz Rowntree and he is one of the greatest people out there. I met him whilst wake boarding in the summer and we became friends and long story short he has let us take his caravan around Europe for the winter. The man is a legend and hopefully will be coming to see us in the winter. All that out of the way now its time to get on with my season.
So the first stop was Dachstein Austria for the pleasure Jam and that is where i first set the caravan down. Continue reading
