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; […]

Lisa

A lucky kid of loving parents being raised in Munich travelling was always part of my life and my parents took me on far away trips to Asia and Mexico when I was still a child. Having studied communication science I soon started working in Tv and media. On my personal travels I experienced the wish to not only enjoy my beloved action sports that I wouldn’t want to miss but also to be able to give back, and that not only financially by supporting the local businesses and tourist offerings. An avalanche accident where I was covered, gave me the push to finally start my own travel offerings where giving back should be an integral part from the beginning. I offer trips that combine action-sports with giving back to the local communities, like skitouring in Nepal and teaching the locals how to ski, so in the longterm they can guide  skitours on their own and build up a winter business. Besides Nepal, I skied in Kamtchatka and Gulmarg, India, as well as Norway and some other European countries. But my favourite will always stay an area in Austria, where my parents build a hut in the 60ies and I grew up with skiing every weekend and winter holidays. Here we are a community of people that grew up the same way and we started snowboarding together and go on skitours in the area.  Currently telemarking is my favourite snowsport.

Danielle

I am Danielle and I am pleased to be one of the members of the Snowplanners community. I would like to tell you a bit more about my snow life. My first ski experience was when I was a two-year-old girl, not really love at first sight but my parents have tried to inspire year after year and it works out well. The love for mountains and to be outside has grown in that period. Years later, I fell in love with mountains and snow but wasn’t convinced by skiing. I switch to a board and became a teacher in snowboarding to inspire the new board generation. After one season in Zell am See I realized that I could learn way more about snowboarding and I choose to train more to get a higher education level. It was a heavy course, but I learned a lot. But skiing was still in my head, so I decide to improve my ski skills and participated in a teacher course. Addiction has started! In the last few years, I have spent all my vacation days in the mountains and did fantastic trips. One of my most special experience is a vacation in Livigno. We did some days ski touring in the backcountry, some lift access days, and one day with a helicopter. Ski touring is something particular, because every turn you have to earn. It is a double sport and nature is all yours. But also in the abounded ski area in Macedonia, it is beautiful to go around with a snowcat to make as many meters as possible. The freedom and peace in the mountains are indescribable, you just have to experience it! Go for it and please give me a message if you have experienced a new freeride Walhalla where I have to go to!

Peter

From the first moment that Peter saw snowflakes flutter down, he was enchanted by the winter. After years of nagging at his parents, they finally took him on winter sports at the age of 10. When skiing went smoothly, snowboarding became the next goal. From the age of 16 he went out with friends. First the French student destinations Les Deux Alpes, St. Sorlin and Val Thorens. Then Andorra, Zillertal and Brixental. When his study of Economic Geography entered the final phase, Peter started thinking about a snow-rich sequel. He was allowed to write to the state of Washington in the United States to write his thesis. To be able to stand in the snow himself, he chose climate change and its influence on ski areas as the subject. From the University of Seattle, Peter often moved into the Cascade Range and Olympic Mountains. To conduct interviews in ski resorts but of course also to make the necessary descents. After his diploma he could finally do a season in the snow. He spent a winter in Königsleiten and then in Scandinavia. For Snowboarder MAG, Peter made a tour in a converted van. He wrote articles about unknown ski resorts in Scandinavia, the Baltic States, Eastern Europe, Turkey, Georgia, Russia, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. This was not only about snowboarding but also about the difference in culture and winter sports experience. In Kyrgyzstan, Peter sold his converted van. The Kyrgyz buyer (Maksat) became his best friend. Maksat rented skis from a sea container of 20 years old. He wanted to use the purchased van to bring skis from the city to the ski area (15 km away). Exporting the Dutch van took the necessary time. In the meantime, Peter spent a lot of time with Maksat’s family and friends. He got to know the ins and outs of Kyrgyz life. When he returned to the Netherlands, he wanted to support the local skiers. Peter took a job at Bizztravel in Groningen. As a buyer for winter sports, he spent enough time in the snow. He also met many entrepreneurs from the winter sports industry. In this way, Peter collected material for Maksat in Kyrgyzstan. Skis, snowboards, clothing, sledges and avalanche equipment. He sent this to Central Asia to breathe new life into the local ski rental. Moreover, he regularly went there to freeride. When he started supporting several ski projects, he founded a foundation with friends. This Ryce Travel Foundation helped with the construction of a yurt camp, donated clothing, gave ski lessons and started a football school (because they happened to receive a container with second-hand football clothing). The foundation also tried to bring Central Asia to the attention of Western travelers. When you got there on the slopes you would hear no language other than Kyrgyz, Kazakh, Uzbek or Russian. When Bizztravel was sold in 2015, Peter decided to offer trips himself. These journeys naturally began in Kyrgyzstan. It had to be a trip where the local economy was supported and where travelers would see something of the country in addition to winter sports. It had to be a winter sport that you will never forget. The ski areas are quite limited so Peter was committed to creating a total experience. He convinced local owners to run a yurt camp in the winter and he ensured that the horses came from the stable in the winter. Eventually it became a trip with skiing in a ski area, droppings with a Pistenbully, sleeping in yurts, swimming in hot springs, singing during karaoke, horse riding with downhill, hiking among red rocks, strolling in the capital Bishkek and dancing in a pajama in a spa complex. Everywhere you are taken care of by local people, you sleep in local guesthouses and you eat local meals. And if you are white, you can leave winter sports items for local projects. These journeys have been expanded enormously in recent years with destinations along the former silk route. Ryce Travel now offers trips to Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Kosovo, Serbia, Montenegro, Northern Macedonia, Turkey and Lebanon. In addition, the foundation has started building so-called Travel HUBs. In the town of Karakol (Kyrgyzstan) a meeting center for tourists and locals was opened last summer. In the HUB is a ski rental, an outdoor shop, a coffee shop, a pub, a roof terrace and an information center. The same concept will be realized in Peja (Kosovo) and in Tbilisi (Georgia) in the coming years. Peter nowadays spends most of his winters in countries along the Silk Road. This year he even organizes the first Silkroad Freeride Tour where local freeriders can participate in a four-day event in Karakol, Kyrgyzstan. They are trained by pro-riders from Europe and the US. The goal is to prepare local freeriders for the World Freeride Tour.
