I have to tell you it wasn’t a easy season start for me after new year. I got sick so I had to stay in the bed for one week! after I got the OK from the doctor, my trip started on the 12th of January ‘ hunting for snow’! I drove with our photographer ( Alex Papis) to our first stop to Italy to meet up with our filmer as well with my riding friend Fredrik Evensen.
The base at the first stop was insane but the snow had a crusty layer on top so we couldn’t do not much! We tried some more spots but we got not really lucky with the weather conditions ( lots of wind……) after three days watching weather maps we desisted to travel to east Tirol to find better snow there! I remember first day riding in between trees I got a little bit frustrated because the snow base was not good enough to do big stuff! The day after we tried another ski resort but the weather got super warm, on 2200 meters around + 3 degrees. After that day we had to find a new location with better snow, so we did a few phone calls as well we check some more weather maps. At the next day we packed the cars and we drove to south Tirol and there we found good snow and we could finally start shooting for the new Pirates movie!
