Snow Storm – Ski Tour Ends in Moon Landing
The wind is beating and howling, by now I pulled the jacket’s hood as tight as possible over my helmet to get some shelter from this storm. You wouldn’t think that a thin neckwarmer can make the difference, but without it I would suffer serious forstbites. Grindingly I put one ski by a time forward slowly making my way to the top, fighting against mother nature.
One wouldn’t believe that this spot ever was visited by a single human soul. It feels like a moon landing. The ski tour jacket also reaches the limits of its capabilities, the wind rocks it, but still not feeling any cold of this rogue storm. Soon I’ll see the chine, then the weather conditions will be better.
Finally, I can feel the reward for this straining ski tour with my fingertips: The view onto the valley reveals 1.000 metres in altitude of untouched powder. Without wasting anymore time I check my skiing gear and prepare for an awesome downhill ride. If you’ll ever be this close to heaven, you’ll also have the feeling of a moon landing. Arriving a the station in the valley my knees are still shaking a bit, but I know that I wouldn’t want to miss this kind of adventure for no reason.
On this ski tour was tested: Alta Verde Alpine Jacket for men and polychromelab Flipneck. Additionally we tested some textile prototypes for lower body parts, on which we’re feverishly working at the moment. All products by polychromelab are available in our online shop.
