Zermatt/Mayrhofen/Hintertux(photobomb)

The fourth camp of the season was a long one. We started the camp at Zermatt, where we stayed for five days. Since I had never visited Zermatt before, I was excited to see what was waiting at the top. Unfortunately I was heading for a disappointment. The road up with 3 cable lifts was awful long and the slopes were not good at all. Even though the sun was shining, the snow was pretty soft, kind of wintery, and the flat slopes were not helping. We did anyhow manage to get 5 good basic training days, out of witch three GS and two SL.

From Zermatt, we continued our journey to Mayrhofen, where we stayed for 2 days resting and refueling for the upcoming 7 ski days. We also drove to the Blizzard/Tecnica factory for some new boot angles and some new skis.

Fully recovered we started skiing at Hintertux, witch in my opinion is one of the best glaciers there is. The first two days offered us fog and a bit of rain, but after that the sun started to shine. We had a great camp altogether, except for the last day witch we had to cancel due to extremely bad conditions.

Now I’m at Tallinn enjoying these days off. Next week we continue with dryland, and in the end of the week we travel once more to Hintertux.
