It was just a couple of weeks before the end of the season. Philipp Schicker and I saw the weather forecast for the next day – it was going to be good. That night, it snowed almost 30cm and we knew it would be the last good powder day.
I had already taken a lot of action shots that season and I finally wanted to take some lifestyle shots as well. Philipp was the only motivated rider left at that time. At first, the fog was thick and the visibility terrible. We were afraid that the powder snow would turn to slush before the weather turned better and that we would have to call everything off. However, after a couple of coffees, the fog luckily left and the sky turned blue.
It was time to take action. We could not believe our eyes. The mountain was covered in powder without a single groomed slope. We had to hurry because the sun was pretty warm. After a long hike, we arrived at one of our favorite spots. We got a lot of great shots.
From there back into civilization, we came across a lonely camper in the middle of nowhere. We were surprised at the sight and thought that it would be different to shoot and as a result got a bunch of good shots. This camper has been in the ski area for 20 years. It reminded us of the one in the legendary film, Into the Wild.
