David Bertschinger fled the green pastures of the Alpes in exchange for titty deep powder in Montana for nearly a month. Stay tuned for action shots dropping in magazines soon.
Here is his story:
This is on lulu-pass. In the beginning we had no clue about the area. There are some trails, but if you want to reach the good spots, you just need to freestyle it. We ended up feeling really comfortable on the sleds, so it was no problem anymore to get to the stuff far away!I took this photo during a session. Tom & me were filming some woods-pow-cruising. nothing super technical, but if you have bottomless powder and it's STILL snowing, you don't really need to do more just than spray and butter around! Damn i've never seen so much snow falling in 24hours! .....This is what i'm talking about...This is a 360 degree shot i took on a peak somewhere in the middle of nowwhere near cooke city. The sky was not a lot like on this picture. We were lucky with snow, but unlucky with the weather during this trip.. The thing i like about this shot: In europe you're on a peak one or sometimes two times a day when you're filming in the backcountry. In the states however, with sleds, you pass 3 or 4 mountains in one day!We saw a lot of wildlife! Cooke city is in the middle of nowhere just next to the Yellowstone-nationalpark. To buy food we had to drive 2 hours through the Yellowstone and every time we got some wildlife-surprises! I like! In the beginning we thought it's a big deal to see one of those big guys.....
.....Then when we had to drive for 20 min in bison-speed we realized that it's not too special to see one of these..This is the crew! On this picture it seems, that I'm the only happy guy.. But everybody had an epic time, no worries..! (photo: howzee)
