Our first Powderchase & Slowderchase for this season started with an uneasy feeling – but turned out to be one for the books! It was beginning of January and winter was very shy and thrifty with the anticipated snow so far, but a huge dump was expected for the weekend… Read More
What an adventure! A three day skitour crossing from Savognin to Schwanden. Twelve persons, and only two of those are men: mountain guide Ben and photographer Mathias. We spend three days full of diversion, challenges and incredible nature – the route takes us across three valleys and far away from… Read More
On the way back from our last Powderchase weekend we are already fully immersed in the weather charts and forecasts for the next few days. There will only be limited amounts of snow. And what’s coming, will be in Arlberg. We call a few mountain guides and try to get a bit more insight into the situation and see if there are any alternatives, but we still end up deciding for Warth. Already the third time we’ll be going to this North-pointing ski area on the ’backside’ of Lech.
Four days before ‘our’ weekend the first big snow storm of the year is brewing. Not only in the Northeast, but also from the West there should be interesting amounts of snow. But on top there will also be lots of wind. And the forecasted avalanche situation is pretty sketchy. Where to go?

Weiße Gipfel, glitzernde Tiefschnee-Hänge und traumhaft blauer Himmel am ersten WOMENS POWDERCHASE! Und es gibt ihn doch: Während man hierzulande mit einer Portion Verzweiflung den Schneebericht verfolgt, erstrahlt es etwas weiter südlich weißer als je zuvor. Erst zwei Tage vor Beginn des POWDERCHASE sollten wir erfahren, wohin die Reise ging…. Read More
Al je deze winter in de poeder wil rijden, zal je naar de Dolomieten moeten. En bovendien: waar anders vind je de unieke combinatie van steile couloirs, adembenemende uitzichten, goed eten en coole berggidsen? Terwijl we naar het Zuiden rijden beginnen we – ondanks goede voorspellingen en berichten van locals… Read More
And on top of that: where else would you find this combination of steep couloirs, breathtaking scenery, great food and cool mountain guides? While driving down there – despite good forecasts and local information – we were starting to get a bit nervous. Where on earth was all this snow… Read More
