Summer came. Time to go online:)

Hi everyone,

I am from Poland and ride for a few years. My boards are Rossignol Angus 57 and Jones Flagship 61.
I was lucky to spent the whole last winter season in Switzerland. Here is a short edit made for fun by my girlfriend and me. Hope you will like it

Hahaha! The first shots are from my home resort. Great to see your vid, now I finally know, who's the other one with a Flagship on Hasliberg Seen it infront of the Kuhstallbar at Mägisalp and was waiting to see who will fetch it cause I wanted to offer the owner a beer if hubby could try it for a run (my one is too short for him in his opinion) but the owner took a long rest at the bar and I lost patience. Hoped it will reappear another day but never seen it again. How long did you stay at Hasliberg (on other shots I recognize Zermatt?)? Was it one of the great pow days? http://www.snowboardingforum.com/wes...-pow-alps.html

Great photos , I'm not sure if I see correctly but I think we have the same model (red/black bottom and wooden top)
Yeah there were many great pow days, I love Swiss Alps. However the weather was very often bad. I heard it's typical for Hasliberg region that there is often stormy and fohn comes very often.
Yes, there is a bit of Zermatt on the video , and also shot from Schilthorn and Sustenpass. Was really fun to do this vid, it refreshes good memories

I'm still in CH, living in Meiringen ( yes! I have a gondola 5min walking from my house). I plan to move somewhere to a bigger city and find a job.

How about you? Are you Swiss if I may ask?

Yes, I have the 2013 Flagship 158 and yup, I'm Swiss, living in the capital. But we've got a cabin up on Hasliberg and spend every weekend/holiday there (got a 10min walk right up to Bidmi, without having to queue at your valley gondola station ) Hmmm… Meiringen is not especially good to find a job except from tourism or energy. Got some friends there, most of them don’t work in the valley.
Oh and yes, the Föhn can be a gift and curse. Be aware that the people from Haslital actually call every wind Föhn, even if it blows from the complete opposite direction (for others wondering what I’m talking about: the Föhn is a warm dry local fall wind with up to 60mph). Good thing: the Föhn clears the sky. Many other resorts are covered with thick clouds but Hasliberg has bluebird on Föhn days. Bad thing: exposed gondola won’t run. Since we are already ON the mountain, we don’t have the problem if the main gondola is closed down due to a Föhn storm, so this is actually a very good thing for us, since all the tourist stay down in the valley and we got rather empty slopes Best thing that can happen is if you manage to get to the peak before all gondolas and chairlifts close down, then you’ve got all the fresh, reachable by the T-bar (which always works) on your own.

Yes, Bidmi is a perfect location to start the day. You're lucky In the village can be very crowded indeed. Do you do also some touring?

Not enough. Hubby is a bit lazy and didn't like the snowshoeing But we've done the first split board tour this season and that's definitely a huge improvement in touring. A split is on my shopping list (eyeing a Venture Zephyr) and I'll demand to use it
