Uppps…nearly forgot to post those favs from my last trip to the alps for this winter season. But here it is:

End of march I went to Montafon where the last qualification of this years ChillAndDestroy Tour took place: the Shred Champs! Our crew had to manage some troubles throughout the weekend, due to our crazy host at the accommodation and some after-party-stress. Maybe not the perfect ingredients for the weekend but okay…

Here is the crew-shot:

The crew!

Last weekend I went to the wild wild east again. This time to Heubach for joining the ChillAndDestroy tour over there for the 4th time in a row. The “Thueringer Wald” is always worth a visit…not because of the biggest kickers, or sickest rails, but just because of the crew over there doing a good job and having the most important thing: FUN!

The CAD Crew going crazy...as usually!

Last weekend the Edelweiss Shred at Arosa took place, which was the first showdown of this years Chill And Destroy Snowboard and Freeski Tour. It was my second time at Arosa and this time we made it up the hill without any problems on the road or at the customs. More than 1.5 m snow where waiting for us at downtown Arosa and maybe something like 3 to 4 meters up in the park! The setup was shaped completely out of “real snow” and it was again perfect. The only thing mission was a big kicker, but in the end all riders where shredding the park to the max.

The last weekend of march I joined my last stop of this years Chill And Destroy Tour. We had a sick park and setup, but unfortunately were unlucky with the weather. It started just perfect in the early morning and went out with big snowflakes just after midday so we even couldn’t run the finals.

Some two weeks ago I attended the first stop of this years Chill And Destroy Slopestyle Tour. As Arosa has been host for the final within the last seasons, it was this time place for the 1st stop. The setup was nice as expected, but unfortunately the big kicker which was built just for the contest couldn’t get into the scoring due to extremely windy conditions. Anyway a good competition!

One year passed so fast and now it’s nearly again time for the Board Fusion Photo and Filming Session at Wakepark Thulba. The big success last year showed us, that there should be again a big party and maybe something special at Thulba. That is why we decided, to kick the “contest” and instead create something new, that hasn’t been done before.

First of all we needed a new “Cover” and that is, why I was shooting with Britta and Simm at the studio of a local TV-Station. Our shooting was really funny and in the end we had a good selection of pictures. Finaly Facy, the creative guy who designed the poster together with organizing this event in coop with me and of course some help by others, used one of the last shots we took. I think it’s again a good one and of course, the subject of last year is now used in a new way.

Last weekend we, the CAD-Team, headed to Warth-Schroecken for the final qualification stop of this years ChillandDestroy-Tour. After havin managed everything up in the funpark and putting all the stuff there, Facy, Flip and I decided take some powder shots, due to the reason, that we we’re having a wonderful bluebird and just entering the perfect light aka golden hour.

Perfect time at Warth-Schroecken
