Women’s Freeride & Yoga Camp 2010

From the 19 to 21 March 7 ladies attended my Women’s Freeride & Yoga Camp of the Kästle Adventure Tours in Lech am Arlberg. The camp covered improving technical off-piste skiing skills, video analysis, freeride tactics, line selection and jumping technique. Participants also enjoyed two Yoga sessions to stretch and mobilise weary limbs from a full day of skiing, something you don’t usually do at home but would really enjoy.

Of course, the perfect ski equipment was also provided to the ladies, who were able to test Kästle’s range of off-piste skis, including the FX94 model coming out next season. Both the 166cm and 176cm length, 94mm underfoot, were super popular.

Warren Miller Film Shoot @ Lech Zürs am Arlberg

Last year I was lucky enough to film a segment for Warren Miller’s “Dynasty” in the Lyngen Alps, the very north of Norway. So when Kästle told me I was to film with Warren Miller again this season, what’s more in my home town, I felt like the luckiest person on earth.

For once, snow and weather conditions totally cooperated, the film shoot from 7th to 17th March was a huge success with cold powder and one sunny day after another. My Kästle buddies Karine Falck-Pedersen and Hugo Harrisson were with me, and I found myself guiding the crew including camera director extraordinaire Tom Day and camera assistant Hanno Mackowitz to my favourite spots around Lech Zürs.

The segment will touch on the long history of skiing at the Arlberg, as well as my own family history in Lech, which goes back 400 years. One of the oldest families in Lech, the Huber family resided in the “Huberhus” for 200 years, one of the oldest buildings in Lech and currently a museum.

And here's a taste of what's to come in next year's Warren Miller movie!

Girls Ski Movie

In an interview I once said that one of the things I still want to do is become involved in an all-girls ski movie. This season my chance has finally come! Sandy Lahnsteiner – fitness traininer, mental coach, ex-racer and a woman of action – contacted me in July about the chance to be one of 6 skiers in an all-girls ski movie. The story revolves around a road trip the girls undertake, each to their own home ski resorts. We will travel from Gastein, Austria, to St. Jakob (Eastern Tirol), Cortina (Italy), Lech am Arlberg (Austria), Oberstdorf (Germany) and finally Verbier (Switzerland). As well as some beautiful skiing action, the film looks at how the girls find inspiration from each other to ski the best lines possible. Our goal is to inspire as many people – foremost women, but also men – to grab a group of friends and head to the mountains for some fun skiing action!

The crew consists of:

Riders: Sandra Lahnsteiner (Gastein), Mel Presslaber (St. Jakob), Giulia Monego (Cortina), Lorraine Huber (Lech am Arlberg), Pia Widmesser (Oberstdorf), and Laura Bohleber (Verbier).

Camera: Mathias Bergmann from sweetshots, some of Europe’s best outdoor sports photographers.
