GONE SKIING - Living the life in the mountains

Hi folks :),

This one is a documentary style videoproject from my swedish partner 8848 Altitude produced mostly around the Zillertal Ski Area.

It shows some personal emotions about happenings over the last years, coming back from my 2 ACL injury - cruciate lingament tears, the switch from competing at Freeride World Qualifier to focusing on media productions and how´s like working and living in - and with - the ski industry during skitests tradefairs like ISPO and travelling around.

Basically it´s all about dedication to freeride skiing and an attitude towards life to spend it in the mountains.
But feel free to enjoy some impressions in moving pictures:

So I hope you felt the spirit I wanted to show and if yes,
-> just go out in the mountains to explore and soak in the emotions - feel the peace and freedom which sourrounds you in nature, without any distractions from our modern world.

During the search for new adventures, the team of FreeRidersLife get inspired for their new movie project „Triangle“ by exotic places like the Himalayan mountains in India and the island Corsica. The delight to get in touch with new people and different cultures is important as to draw first lines into a untouched mountain face for the FreeRidersLife family. The strains which they shoulder to reach a aim is sometimes enormous. A hike of several hours is gratefully welcome with a smile because the reward is the descent in an untracked line. To live for a passion is not the easiest way of life. Every decision goes along with a high level of risk and danger. But in the end of the day you get blessed with the energy of the mountains and a better understanding of the meaning of life. a special awareness of life.

Hintertux Glacier - Kaserer Grad Hike - Movie Project

Hi There,

Short insight about an ascent project at the Hintertux glacier for our Freeriderslife movie being released in october 2015.

All in all it is a very exposed ridge and demanding hike up there where we had a lot of fun, but you have to be absolutely sure about snow conditions and be confident of your own constituation and mental health.

We did climb up over the Kaserer Grad towards the "Kaserer Gipfel" - Kleiner Kaserer 3093m
If you want to do this hike, please talk to the locals and guides on the Hintertux glacier about current avalanche and snow situations and be sure that your friends or your team can rely on each other.

To get an overview about it I attached a map to make it as easy as possible.

You take the Kaserer 2 lift up and then traverse to the right to the entry of the hike towards the ridge.
Most of the ascent looks like this - there are some small cruxes where you have to careful.

Better don´t fall...

When you reached the peak after approx. 30-40min. the traverse (see map) looks like this:


When you reached the end of the traverse your line down can look like this and you know the effort getting there was totally worth every step. :)
