Speedriding Courmayeur Mont Blanc Italy

May 12th, 2012

On the last day of our chamonix trip the summit surfers went to the south side of mount blanc to Courmayeur in Italy because of too much wind (fön) at the northern side.
First we drove up with the cable car to the punta heilbronner (3462m). unfortunately there was too much southerly fön wind. so we drove down to the middle station and we were happy to do 5 flights starting on snow and landing on gras field. what a great day!
thanks for this nice trip to the other side of mount blanc.
they are building a new cable car. so i think it will get much more interesting in the future for sure.

Kiting Le Tour

April 26th, 2012

This day we did a ski mountaineering tour from le tour(1462m) to the col de balme (2270m). Because of wind from the wrong direction we decided to ski down to plan des reines where we had nice conditions beside the warm snow to do kiting with our speed glider. there we also discovered the Emosson Dam in switzerland. philipp wanted do do a basejump in the next future…
lets see.
thanks for the nice action day.

Skiing Grand Montets in Chamonix

Speedriding Bischling

April 1st, 2012

Hi extreme wannabe heros!
this day the summitsurfers team consisting of patrick, tom, stefan and me we drove to werfenweng for speedriding and speedflying the bischling!
we had a really great day and managed up to 19 flights!
for me it was only possible to start and land by skies, because starting the speedglider by feet i have to wait some months.
but i do a lot of training. now i am able to run about 12km/h.
so i need a little bit more speed.
but i felt good to fly and do our homework like d.k. says…
cya in the air and have nice easter holidays

Speed Riding Großer Priel (2515m)

March 18th, 2012

Hi extreme wannabe gerlinde’s 😉
on friday marlene, michaela, birgit and me drove to hinterstoder at afternoon and we hiked up to the prielschutzhaus.
there we met stefan from czech republic. we did our dinner with 10 other guys from cz. they were 4 days at the prielschutzhaus for ski mountaineering.
we were lucky to sleep at a normal guesthouse room in the hut and not the crowded winter room.
nevertheless at 5am on saturday we woke up and started the tour one hour later. the sunrise was very beautiful and we needed 3 hours to the beginning of the brotfallscharte. we decided very fast to fix our crampons because marlene slided down 30m like in a bob run.
My heart sank into my boots.
we needed some time for the brotfallscharte but its better to go more slowly than to risk any dangerous situations. the view at the top of the brotfallscharte was really great. we admired the dachstein region and the great totes gebirge. at the secondary summit we stored our skis and hiked on the ridge to the summit of the großer priel. wowwwww what a nice feeling. after a break we hiked back to our skis and stefan and me we flew with our speedglider down to the jausenstation. so we had to wait 3 hours for our girls because they drove down to the klinserscharte and hiked another 500m’s of height up and skied down the dietlhölle which was very steep for skiing. but they managed it very good. congratulations to the girls team!! so stay tuned and cya at the great mountains.
have a nice week
