As FWT made it easy for us by assembling most freeride comps into FWQ circuit I decided to sign up for the one's not too far away.
Hadn't done any ski competitions since racing for Weber State University (Utah) in late 90s (yes, I am that old...lol), missed the road trips / camaradery.
All road trips were overall a great experience thanks to either my girlfriend or co-freerider WIlliam M. tagging along, discovering new resorts / regions of northern Alps, mostly fun & engaged organisators and thanks to meeting some great people / freeriders. Finished best 15th, 156th overall in season (out of 520)
But, all the hussle each of those saturday mornings, climbing, waiting.....all for a c.a 60 second run in mostly bad snow conditions or a lame face (all those in Austria!)...means I will choose more carefully which comps I enter next year as priority will be again and always: FIND THE BEST SNOW AND RIDE FREE
