Autumn Interviews...

Autumn is the calm month for the majority of people in the ski business. Here in Chamonix, there is not much happening and I have spent my time training hard for the upcoming ski season as well as for my guide courses.

Lots of time goes to computer work planning the season and doing interviews. I both interview people and get interviewed and below are a couple of new ones.

Firstly I got interviewed by Swedish Radio last Thursday at P4 Extra, one of the biggest radio programs in Sweden. Check this one out here (Swedish only).

Then EpicTv has released the full interview with Bjarne Salén and myself. Check it out below. 

I also interviewed friend and big mountain snowboard legend Xavier de le Rue for EpicTv Weekly - Check that interview out, plus topics such as sailing myths, surfer Matt Wilkinson and ski/adventure world elections - it's all here to be watched below!

A Great Ski Day In Cervinia/Zermatt

After skiing the Glacier Rond the other day we tried to go alpine climbing on Midi, but got shut down by the weather. Then I got a call from my friend, Italian skier Giulia Monego. She said she was going to be in Cervinia skiing, the conditions and weather was looking good and she invited Ale Campos and myself to come and stay over the night at her boyfriend Patrick’s house.

We had a great time together with Giulia and Patrick who showed us some wonderful Italian hospitality, and then today Giulia and myself went up to the Zermatt glacier to have another great ski day.

Ten to twenty centimeters of fresh creamy snow awaited us in the morning and even though it was plenty of people on the glacier, almost no one skied off the pistes.

The wind picked up during the afternoon so we headed down to the valley for a good Italian lunch and a yoga session – A perfect ending to another good day in the mountains. Thanks Giulia and Patrick for this time!
