Austria - tirol - Stubai alps - Wilder Freiger (3418m)

Nice skitour round with Manuel today.

Becher Haus (mid low of the pic) as seen from the Wilder Freiger

the opper part of the Freiger Ferner

looking for powder leftover we drove ca half an hour to stubai valley (Grawa alm) and skinned up to the  Sulzenau huette continuing to the top of Wilde Freiger/Cima Libera 3418m
We then traversed out to descend a parallel valley to the Nuerberger huette and  Bsuchalm by skiing the all  Langentalbach down to the street leading to stubai glacier lift area. 

Then back to the car via stubai strasse thumbing ;-)

This makes it approx 1900m up and 2200m down for over 20 km round trip in one of the nicest corner of the stubai alpen.

Moreover, the north exposure and the high altitude gave us the possibility to ski pow from above 2200m all over...wind has been playing a bit anyhow ;-)
The view toward BecherHaus huette and the sourrounding peaks are stunning...definitely an area to explore more ;-)

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…
