Switzerland by ski
A shot in the winter alpine of Switzerland. A skitour up remote passes and snowy slopes.
A break and a look at the path ahead. Erwin, our guide, plows ahead through the snow and makes a passage for us to reach the distant ridge line.
Words of encouragement by Erwin, who was seemingly impressed by my performance on my first ever backcountry skitour.
A winter wonderland gradually turned into a hostile and icy environment. Close to the peak we encountered rough gales, biting ice crystals and temperatures far below 0°C.
The final descent. Carving fresh lines into the powder was an indescribable experience: It's somewhere between a walk on clouds and a rush of adrenaline in your veins.
