ONBOARD GIRLS WEEK - LAST REPORT

Sorry I didn’t upload a blog earlier but we had been cut off the internet for the last days (I think the neighbor noticed we were sneaking into his wireless network and finally set up a password)…

Friday was the last day of Onboard’s Girls Week 2009 and in the end we got a bit luckier with the conditions as it started snowing middle of the week. Of course it did because we got drunk Wednesday night…


Last picture of the night…

Therefore “hangover Thursday” started a bit late but it didn’t matter because visibility was zero on top of the mountain so we decided to scope the area a bit and Margot found two spots not far from our house – a bomb drop and a wallride. This little French girl is a machine: Going out all night and riding all day seems to be no contradiction for her (it is for me…). Despite “the feeling that my head explodes after each drop”, she didn’t stop riding until she was satisfied with the shots…


It is not very often that you have a spot completely for yourself, plus a personal photographer and personal editor with you…

On the last day it was snowing pretty heavy but there was no time left for powder turns – we were on a mission. At the beginning of the week some of the girls had already done a wallride which they found in the resort of Silvretta Nova but there was also a rail above the wallride that looked tasty. So we came back on the last day to finish our last mission. It looked pretty cool, although not too easy because if you went down on the wrong side, you would fall a couple of meters. After a few tries and a harsh monologue with herself (“I won’t pussy out, I won’t pussy out”), Hana killed it. LAST DAY, LAST SHOT – BANG!


The wallride was already done at the beginning of the week but we saved the best for the last day…

Stay tuned for the whole story – to be published in one of the Onboard issues next season!

I don’t want to finish this week without saying “Thanks” to some people: First of all to all the girls for coming from all over the planet (Leanne Pelosi, Sarka Pancochova, Lisa Filzmoser, Margot Rozies, Hana Beaman, Alexis Waite, Silvia Mittermüller), the men and the woman behind the camera (Onboard senior photographer Matt Georges, filmer Frederick Thelen and US photographer Christy Chaloux), Nova Park shapers Sveti and Alberto for their help in all matters, the guys from Young Mountain/ Q Parks Karin Weinberger and Jan Zach for the organisation and the resort Silvretta Montafon for hosting us.
