I have been trying to get some more riding shots but it keeps raining. This morning I woke up ready to go dig and ride and there is snow 300 meters up from my house. Here are a couple more pics I had laying around.

Wide angle berm shot




3 lines into the Tri slalom mini berms



Hopefully get some god riding shots before winter but it keeps raining or snowing. Oh well, the lifts open in 2 weeks and there is 3 feet of powder on some of the highest chairs.

Hey Damo

Saas Fee had 3 feet of fresh last weekend and Verbier is open. The lifts over 2500m have good pow. It is a bit thin but someone rode the north face of Mont Gelée (Verbier) 3 days ago. I am still in bike mode but if it keeps staying cold I might have to change gears.

side note: Thanks. Where did you see it?

There's not enough snow here to make ride the north face of anything! The lifts open in a few weeks... better come soon eh?

The old locals are saying it's gonna be a huge winter!!! :thumb:

Bikes. Take the train up to Rochers de Naye and then there are 5 or so different trails coming down. It there isn't too much snow at the top it is an 1800 meter run.

Was jumping at lunch the other day with a buddy. I just started rebuilding the lips. I got a bit of work to do but it was still fun riding even though it was a bit rough.

Julien warming up.

Dammit Ben!

Monthey?
Fribourg, behind the Scott HQ. Do you want to come ride it sometime? There are all kinds of different size jumps and a pumptrack. There are chains up but it is for everyone so let me know if you want to go and I can make sure you know where the keys are.

I have been riding a lot in Bex and Dorenaz if you want to come over for a ride one of these days.
