Wenn deine Tour länger dauert als der Tag

In February 2018 I participated in a special event by the Alpenverein Gebirgsverein. They held a 2 day workshop on how to safely spend the night outdoors in winter. We learned about different types of bivouacs, how to stay warm and energized and then spent the night in self-built bivvys. My accomodation of choice was a snow cave.

Splitboard Article in Volume Magazine

a short time ago, Roman and myself were asked to write an article for an austrian music magazine called Volume for their Freeride Special on the topic of Splitboarding. we sat down, thought about it, started to write, erased parts again but finally finished the piece and called it “Split it – Die Geschichte des Splitboards und wofür es gut ist”.
