    Hi guys,
    My name is Hans, im from Norway and today i live in the Stavanger area along the west coast. Skiing has never been a big part of my life until i went to Val Thorens with my company in 2011 and totally fell in love with the alps. After that ive been going to the alps every year, at least 2-3 times.

    I also ski alot in Norway, and ive been in Canada once.

    Wepowder has helped me alot with chasing powder, both in Norway and the alps.

    My favorite resorts are La clusaz in the alps, and Myrkdalen in Norway.

    I'm Erwin, 25 yo, living in the Netherlands. I never stood on a snowboard or skis until 3 years ago. I started snowboarding and kinda got addicted to the snow and the mountains. So far no powder experience, so that's the reason I'm reading along here. I'm planning to do a off piste or splitboarding course this season, so if anyone has any advice on that: love to hear it!

    I am Phil from the south of Germany, Augsburg to be specific (in transatlantic measures it'd be considered Munich). Student, 23 yo, skiing keeps making me broke. Lifelong skier, constantly cracking jokes about snowboarders. Got into powder a couple of years ago, started obtaining some safety knowledge three years ago and keep going ever since. Love small resorts, deep days, tree runs. Started touring last year. Looking into doing an Eastern Europe Skiing trip. Hit me up if you've got something on your mind. Cheers

    I'm Ivan, I'm 50, snowboarder from around 9, freerider from 5 and splitboarder from my first experiences.
    I try to chase the powder where I can (in Italy: Valle d'Aosta, PIemonte, Lombardy, but when I can also in France, Switzerland and Austria) even if unfortunately I'm tied a bit to the mood of friends who could haven't my own spirit.
    The passion for snowboarding and powder also leads me to travel overseas (Canada and Japan).
    In the summer I like trekking to be able to keep in touch with nature and the mountains.
    If someone wants to share their passion for snow with me, don't hesitate to contact me.


    PS: to some of my friends, I like to do freeriding with the e-bike, if you are interested, I can put you in touch with them.

    I'm Guido, 29 years old from the Netherlands. I've been skiing since my 5th, and switched to snowboarding on my 11th. Fell in love with the mountains since ever since. But I've only been in the snow for about a week or two each year.

    This year I moved with my girlfriend to Montafon, Vorarlberg, Austria for the season to really learn how to freeride & tour the backcountry. So far we did our first tours with snowshoes. Now we're looking for a split board, and hope to tour at least 30 days a year.

    If you're in the Montafon area, and want to ride together, pm me!

    My name is Anders, I'm 34yo from the west coast of Sweden close to the Norwegian border.

    I started alpine skiing when I was about 8 until 12, then started other sports and forgot about skiing until 2013 when I found the love back, and this time for back country and off piste skiing. Been doing it since between 1-3 weeks every season.

    Now living in Geel, Belgium. Hope to find other snowheads in here for social gatherings, I'm flexible and always up for an adventure in the mountains or ski/sport related activities.

    Hi everybody! I'm Mikael, a 45 year old snowboarder from Lund in the Deep South of Sweden. Yeah I know, I live in the wrong place...

    I started riding quite late, at the age of 37. I unfortunately also went to Japan quite early in my snowboarding career and got ruined for life - now I constantly yearn for powder, and I think the amount of snow we get in Sweden is a bad joke. I also really like tree riding and prefer riding off piste in general, as I see other people on the piste as the number one health hazard (I've had a number of close calls where I've could have gotten killed, and also accidents where I got slammed by skiers out of control). Off piste it's between me, the snow, the trees, and the rocks.

    I should also add that I don't sit down when I strap in and I never sit in blind spots. In fact, I see sitting down as a failure. 😃

    As you can see I'm still just a "Tourist", but hopefully that will change soon. I've had the intention of joining UCPA for a week of "tout neige" for a number of seasons to get myself educated, but for different reasons (skill level, becoming a parent, money) it has never materialised. Instead, I'm hoping to be able to join my first avalanche class in Sweden this winter.
    I'm a powder puppy.

    Hi, it's Michele from the cost of Tuscany. I chose the wrong board? No, the Apuanian Alps just 30 mins behind me have always attracted me more than the sea. I am a snowboarder since 2002 when I was 23. I made summer camps in the French Alps, winter camps in Val d' Aosta and Dolomites. I started to appreciate the free ride thanks to snowboard teachers who took me to explore. I am not able to do a lot during the season due to the cost to reach the Alpine ridge but I try to have a week and some trips. I am a beginner and I ride always under the principle of "safety first" .
