Lars Windlin

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

I have been bad at updating the blog lately for different reasons but one of them is because it has been really good in Engelberg so I have been out shooting and riding a lot.
One of the riders I have been working with a lot is local Engelberg skier Lars Windlin. He pretty much know every corner of the mountain and very few people will be able to keep up with him when he is flying down.
He just released a short edit from this season in Engelberg. Check it out and enjoy good snow, big cliffs and fast lines.
Here are a few shots of him as well, the best ones will be saved for later.

THE ride

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

I’m back in Engelberg again after a very good trip to Georgia. I’m happy with the content we got and I’m sure you will see the story in different magazines next season.
After one day on the mountain in Bakuriani we wanted to go early next morning to Tbilisi to get a full day there before going home.
We asked our hotel to get a shuttle for the next morning with enough space for our gear.
When it showed up it was way to small so they had to get a new one, this time they said it was a minibus so we were happy about that.
After an hour the old shuttle we sent away came up the hill towing our new minibus because it had the worst tires ever.
At that point we kind of understood that the 2h ride would take a bit longer.
What we did not know was that it would get to be one of the most funny shuttle rides me, Johan and Patrick ever had.
Here is a video that shows a few things that happened.
