Earlier this year I was invited by my good friend Sven Brunso to join him and serve as a second ski model on a 2-week tour of the Alps. The trip was organized by George Koch, as well-known writer in the ski industry and beyond. George will be writing articles from this trip for Ski Canada and Backcountry Magazine. The photographer for the trip was Henry Georgi, another extremely well-known ski and action sports photographer. I was definitely the newbie on the trip, and really thankful to be there with this great group of guys.
This is the first photo taken of me while on the trip. The location is Haslital, a smaller ski area in Switzerland. Small is really a relative term in the Alps though, as even “small” ski areas often have 4-5 thousand vertical.
Above is a shot from Zinal, another “small” area in Val d’Anniviers, Switzerland. The good folks at FlyLow Gear were kind enough to provide me with some of their stellar gear for the trip. I’ve been rocking FlyLow’s Magnum pants for a while now, and I was super stoked on the new purple Chemical pants. If you haven’t checked out their gear you definitely should. Thanks, FlyLow!
OK, enough with telling you about the trip. How about some photos?
