Santa Claus came earlier this year. ;)

Since I go ski touring over the hollidays, I bought my self, finally,  a Avalanche Backpack (28L).

Today I made a small ski tour, the weather was bad, but it was a good training and a lot of fun as well.

Good luck... Been carrying one for some years now up the mountains, have been buried last year for the first time, mine didn't release. Had a lot of luck, the guide only been buried up to the knees. Found me quick with the Pieps and been able to dug me out... second birthday

Have a couple days off and went to case some snow. The first part I spend in the Martellertal where I made the Madritschspitze (3265M) and the Plattenspitze (3422M). Yesterday evening I changed the location to the Langtaufertal, but it snows and has poor visibility, looks like a resting day.

A few pics...

I'am very sorry for the links, but I do not know how to post the videos directly. The links lead to my private photo website and show in the first video a nice panorama on the summit of Madrtischspitze, the second shows the brutal wind doing the accent to Plattenspitze, and the third shows the panorama with heavy wind on Plattenspitze.

Beautiful day with plenty of fresh snow to try and power through.  Ended up having to drop my pressure to 1.5 psi just to make it up the gentlest of hills.  Maybe it's finally time to swap to the winter tires!

Fantastic conditions for fatbiking today.  Glorious sunshine, temps nicely below freezing, and a beautifully packed trail.  Possible rain next week, so had to make the most of it!
