Still considering January as the beginning of the season the Austrian alps got hit with the second big storm already. High avalanche danger due the enduring snowfalls resulted in road and resort closures, even villages were shut down. Since there was no escaping the fact that filming snowboarding was on the agenda. With my friends Marco Feichtner and Flo from Pirates movie production we looked for options to get creative and find some sort of challenge, like a spot to do a trick that would eventually add to the timeline of my Pirates videopart that I will be working on this season. That day I was excited because I had one of the first prototypes of my new snowboard line Slash with me and this brought extra motivation to try it out. Avoiding the Autobahn we looked over the stacked snow on the side of the road for some feature that would spark our imagination to snowboard and do a cool trick. All the people were busy plowing, blowing or shuffling snow wearing thick jackets and hats. Only the kids were out playing. The actual bridge of the Autobahn caught my attention with it's dual pillars supports, wanting to get to the bottom of those I parked my car and walked off looking for a way that would bring me across the river. Once there Marco caught up and we inspected the scene. Reminded of features that I had hit in the past I saw potential but before we would have to put work into preparing the spot with takeoff and landing. Marco was not turned on by it. Carlos our photographer in tow, Flo and I started to collect snow from the in-run down and shaped the transition leading up the pillar. The soft powder snow was not gonna be sufficient and Flo realized the fact early and looked around for wood scraps to find under this bridge. He found the missing puzzles with applause. It took a long time to set up and so we decided to come back the next day and hit it. Arthur Longo had driven from France to join for his first day filming with the Pirates crew. So we started sessoning and Arthur's routine to ride halfpipes showed in this tricky spot. He was somehow perplex to see me with my new board. We rode until the end of the day trying all kinds of variations of tricks. Also if you ride a spot like this where you put a lot of work into it tends to become more easy after the transition is ridden for a bit. We both got some for the camera but also my riding felt better even thought I am still a bit sketchy after the long summer.
