Came home from one month of pow cruising in the alps but had to go straight down again. Max Hygge and Maria wanted to get a taste of the good stuff so headed straight back for Switzerland and got with the program. Max Hygge reporting:

You just gotta love it. The coffe, the food, the people and the wine. And for this season the totally insane ammounts of snow on top of that.... Can it get too god?
Chris Hoter gets a hit on Bruno leaving an excellent Italian cuschino. Pillow that is.
CLICK HERE TO READ MORE! Had a great time hanging out in the Dolomites with Chris and Bruno Compagnet eating pow, lasagna and pizza. Even got to ride a day with Tveito, Big Alex and Sandbech. Tveito stepped up the huck factor a allwas, at least till he planted his head in his knee, and even inspired old Brono to take more air in a couple of days than he had done for the last five years together according to himself.
Holter enjoying another hard day at the office.
Bruno on the last rock of the run, 10 m from the station.
Hooked up with Leo, our main man with the master plan in the Dolomites and he took us to the good stuff both on and off the mountain. When in Italy you have to enjoy the hygge with the locals, lots of espresson both at the top, middle and bottom station.

Some gourmet Italian snax, weissbier nad vino apre pillow skiing.
And some pizza, claro.
Can it get better? Or can it even get too good maybe? There can definitely be too much snow sometimes. We got out of Italy just in time before things started to collapse.... The roofs filled up with new snow faster than they could be cleared, the roads started to close and the lifts closed. Whan we got home this is what Leo sendt us:
I think it was on that chair I was sitting and enjoying a coffe...
It has already been a legendary season so far in the alps. Even though it has barely started. I've had some more awesome weeks after doing couloirs and coffe bars in Canazei, going thorugh both France, Switzerland, Austria and even Germany, for the ISPO in Munich.
Ripping together with Tor Fænrik aka "da captain" in Disentis, Switzerland. First stopped by Chamonix and Aosta, with Pilbøgen and Fripster, getting a nice dinner by kokken Jens at the Munchies and some good riding on the first big January storm. Charging the batteries at Fripsters place with good times and getting some online work done also hit the spot. Thanx to Fripster for the hopitality and the beer! Frippe puttin some abracadabra into the pillows of Cham Pow Luc Then headed to Disentis where everything just got better and better. Crashed in the brand new Nangijala bed & bar that has taken afterski and nightlife into a new level in Disentis. (Level one that is still actually... so we are not talking Garage here).
Disentis was as always tons of pow to go around for everybody to share long after snowfall. What a place. Hooked up with the Radicals, with the Åre vacation club crew and with Capt Fænrix, lillejallis and brand new Morten.
The Ponteletoons parked outside. Good hygge inside.
And stuff like this for Morten and all the others outside.
Than, after a quick visit to Andermatt with the Havre dudes, Eidslott, Bjørni and Sandbech, I headed to ISPO to get my skis waxed by the superman Swix prepp professor and then it was straight back to Italy again. And hold on to the brillan. It had snowed about a couple of meters since the last time I was there and it snowed over another meter when we had arrived. Definition of epic. Claim that mofokkaz.
This terrain, with all that snow? Best ever. Just ski down there and jump off of something for crying out loud. As long as there isn't a tree there, the landing is good.
The Olympics in pillows was also held when we visited Italy this time. Here is Chris passing one of the favorites for the gold medal. And just forget about it..... we will be back.
