Austria - Tirol - Nockspitze (2404m)

Nice friday afternoon with Flo and Birgit.
we got snow, we got wind (as the next cold front is settling in at the moment) and we`ve got a nice run down the couloirs we had a look together with Flo some time ago (see here). This time we skied integrally from the top.

bit more tracks than last wonder as last weekend half the world have been skiing "steep stuff" as the conditions were very good...glad fri-sat-sun i had a calm corner in Switzerland with Andrea and Jakob

Have to say i did not look so steep this time....moreover, more lines are there, in what i think is a great playground area for non-grown up ;-) like us
Kalkkoegel and Nockspitze area are amazing and just within half an hour driving from my desk ;-)
looovvvv it

Strong wind from south at the moment (see the ridges)...classical Fhön/Stau situation

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…
