Searching for angles.

I wanted to search for a good angle to take skiers with my 400 mm, i think it would make a cool frame . I called Nat segal an excellent skier who is currently in Chamonix. Unfortunately the winds have worked the snow and we couldn’t really find all the elements for the frame i wanted. I switched to my 100 and we just rode brevent flegere, sometime stopping for a shot…the snow was variable which is good for training. I guess. Nat segal

Pow with Jesper Petersson

so. we had one storm. It was nice. I skied with Jesper Petersson, One of the new strong ski alpinist of chamonix. Last time i took a picture of him skiing was when he was in the Y couloir of aiguille verte.

I got some shots of him skiing powder. And since we haven’t had that much champagne lately. I post them all. Porn.

The drought effect

I remember (smiling at ) my friends in the sierra california who for the past 5 years have been skating on lakes whilst we were scuba diving neck deep powder. This is our turn now, drought means skatable lakes. It is cute …it was at the emosson dam so the views are alright. With John Minogue, Jtan jacob, jenn shelton and giulia Monego

finding skiing in the desert

The Alps under high pressure, we can’t breath in Chamonix. Skiing can still be fun , sometime finding pockets of ancestral cold powder, some fun days out here and there with good company…

At the top of a powder face , binding broke. Luckily the snowboarder Davide Capozzi comes to the rescue with a spare toe binding in his pocket and a screwdriver . pretty unusual-random. saved the day.

dry-chamonix

It is currently very dry in chamonix and the Alps in general. Although the high mountains are skiable, anything under 2500M is grass. It is of course not necessarily due to the global warming trend but if you add it to the arctic being 20c warmer than it should be.Over 61 millions americans voted trump and believe global warming is a chinese hoax-we should keep drilling everywhere-keep using as much fossil fuel as possible and fuck the research for better energy sources. This is worrisome . Meanwhile in chamonix , we breath the most polluted air in France, we have no snow in december. Oh well!
