FEEL THE FLOW

“Die Freireiter”, Andreas Prielmaier and Thomas Mayer, met up with Sonnia Höffken, who is an avid yogini and freerider, in La Grave. The guys were skeptical at first, but after sharing some incredible runs with Sonnia (SkiYo – feel the flow! ®), they found the positive effects of yoga for skiers intriguing.

The level was very high and many riders offered a huge bag of tricks, which made it rather difficult for the judges to make their decisions.

Babs Bayer was the snowboard coach of the day, taking care of the riders who were very eager to improve their park skills.
they worked on basics like 50-50 sliding the box, but also on harder tricks like boardslides. they also improved their kicker skills.

 

for the first time, skiers also participated in an Action Cats coaching, they received lots of pointers by skicoach Felix Ehmann.
