MILD AND DRY CONDITIONS THIS WEEKEND

When going outside, you will unfortunately still see that the ski slopes are green. That is because the temperatures are higher than normal with dry weather and some sun. After the weekend the temperature drops a few degrees and high areas in the Western Alps will turn white. In the valleys, the precipitation falls mostly […]

REGIONAL DIFFERENCES THIS WEEKEND

Coming days, most snow will fall in the north of the Alps, especially in Austria. It is cold with a snow line below 500 meters. There are large differences with the south and southwestern parts of the Alps, where we find more sunny periods and higher temperatures. Next week, we will find dry and sunny […]

11 MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT AVALANCHES

Avalanches are always a popular topic for conversations and articles in the press. Unfortunately, a lot of nonsense is told and so all kinds of misunderstandings arise each winter sports season. Therefore, Rolf Westerhof, Founder of Snow Safety Center, has summarized 11 misconceptions, hoping to clarify the unknown or underestimations of Avalanches. 1.       OFF PISTE; […]

John

My name is JD the inventor of 100% wax-free solutions for skis and snowboards. I have been asked to tell my Snow Sports innovation story. A very unlikely story in fact about how I from my hometown of Wells Somerset in the southwest of England and the slopes of Austria came up with the invention to make skis and snowboards wax-free forevermore, even better 100% ECO. It all came about because I got so sick of waxing only to find it did not work as the conditions had changed overnight or from hour to hour. It was very important to me that my skis glided effortlessly while I was working as a trainer and ski instructor on the slopes of Austria throughout the winter. It was then I thought or I remember thinking, there has to be a better way to make skis and snowboards work and glide better than they do.

Merijn

Merijn has been working as a sports instructor since 2000, but postponed winter sports for as long as possible the first time. He knew that after the first time he wanted nothing else and there probably wouldn’t be any money left for a summer vacation. At the age of 23, it was really going to happen and was immediately sold. At the time working as a full time skating and inline skating and outdoor instructor. From 2009, winter sports holidays were no longer enough and he left for New Zealand for his first full season. He obtained his first snowboard instructor degrees that season. Many more would follow in the snow, the counter now stands at 15. In addition to snowboarding, he also obtained his degrees for skiing and back country. Since he makes it a habit to turn his hobbies into his work, he has also become a kite surfing instructor. In all seasons people worked full time as ski and snowboard instructor / guide. If there is no snow to play in, he is standing behind the stove in a number of renowned restaurants in Amsterdam. After New Zealand and Canada, the last 6 years were in Japan. Here the love for culture, food and snow (lots of snow!) Came together. For the time being he is not going to leave it either. Together with his wife Annemiek, they have bought a lodge and set up their own snowsports school. The Japan Snowsports company wants to distinguish itself through a customized product. In addition, they look for the best snow and terrain for their customers. www.jpsnowsports.com

Gavin

My love affair with Snow-Sports began when I was a kid, no idea how old. But less than 10 for sure. I remember sledging on a private ski club hill in the Peak District, Derbyshire. Seeing some skiers and a button lift, I knew I wanted this. Ski Sunday and the two Bell Brothers, Martin and Graham racing for GB later caught my imagination. My course was set. I first skied age 14. Pamporovo, Bulgaria, 1989. Day 1. I reasoned snowplough was unnecessary. I could basically speed skate on the ice rink. Surely, I could do parallels easy? I suggested this to my instructor, he disagreed. I refused to learn snowplough. On that basis we fell out. So, after lunch on day 1, for this reason, my instructor said follow his directions and snowplough with the class or ski on my own. On my own it was. I skied on the same hill next to my ski class, alone. I fell. Lots. End of Day 2, after falling & failing, then failing & falling, the parallels clicked. I never looked back. A speed demon was born. End of Day 3 I skied down “the Wall”. These days, I’m a 21year old kid trapped in a well-used (maybe abused) body, 44 years old. My sporting lifetime includes playing a little pro & semi pro cricket, being a licensed free fall skydiver, motorsports participant, martial artist (karate) and super keen skier (I qualified as an instructor with IASI in 2015) for 30 years. In 2019 I vowed to step away from corporate life to develop myself as a Life/Success Coach. My intention was for my life to be reformed around my skiing. I am slowly re-dedicating my life. Skiing is now my dominant sport & passion. Mountain life is in my soul. My love of sport at the heart of it all. My vision, through the medium of skiing, is to coach people in the art of the growth mindset. To help develop and leverage internal mental power to drive you onwards and upwards, to strengthen the body and mind and fulfil all your potential, create success for yourself and discover your joy, on or off the Mountain. January 20, 2020 brought a significant life event. My right ski came off carving round an S bend hard left. I was thrown into at least two trees. My injuries? 16 bone fractures, a lung haematoma, exploded knee. 2 operations, titanium leg plates, reconstructed knee.  Still a speed demon lives. Rehab will be long and hard. For season 2021 to be my comeback I will work harder than ever before. I will recover. I will be stronger. I will be a better skier and a better coach. I will succeed and leverage my experience to help people who want and need a little help to reach their dream. I will make this experience become a benefit for myself and others What is my experience for, if not for the use and benefit those who seek help and support to develop their life and realise their dreams? Combining innovative approaches to traditional ski teaching with other modes of learning and a proprietary model for success, psychological resilience and strength development, I will enable and support people to reach and achieve their own dreams, in skiing and in life. Because for Me, Skiing IS LIFE and every Human Being deserves to live unlimited. Come & Ski, let me delimit you.
