Italy - Sud Tirol - Sarntaler Alps - Zinseler (cima di Stilves 2422m)

With Flo Today on a day with strong snowfall, poor visibility on the south side of the alps and fhön conditions on the north side.
Another storm coming from south, another fhön day in Innsbruck with +7°C...
snow is falling copiously just at the other side of the main alpine ridge, this means for us something like 45 min driving south.... 

Sooo, We moved south and got a day of heavy snow and average visibility.

From Aussertal in JaufenTal (1082m)  into the Gospeneider bach then heading toward the Gospeneider Joch (2303m).... due to poor visibility and dangerous snow conditions we stopped there and skied back on rather deep heavy wet snow, quite hard to ski.

Nice day outside for approx 1200m up and down.

Training - Self made trainingboard

Self made Wood carved Training Board

It is a bit that i am thinking about a feasible way to make a wood training board without spending too much. 
Well, this is the idea i came up with:
4 wood boards 28mm x 300mm x 1200mm (price ca. 5 Eur each, full wood)1m metal threaded rod (8mm) to be cutted in 4 pieces of 25cm each8 bolts M88 washer M8Wood specific gluesdrill2 or 4 crimping tools  to fix the panels while gluing them together (overnight)sandpaper grid 400 and 10010mm drill tip to make the fixing holes 25 mm drill tip to make  the starting holes at the edges of the  slotswood-saw
The A3 sized plan can be downloaded here as PDF (Click).
It is basically an assembly of woodboards which are easy to work with, without specific material. the boards are first carved and then glued together.
Below some pictures of the process.

Before to glue the panels need to be treated with a sort of protective agent to look alike the metolius woodboard... i choose the Swedish oil to paint the boards…
