Seems like Italy got the best of the snow again towards the end of last week and over the weekend, with Helbroner continually popping up in my inbox again. Dave Searle was over their with Ross Hewitt along with Cedric Bernardini and others (click on their names to see their blog entries). Conditions in Courmayeur were also pretty good. Lorne’s report goes into a little more detail of their day over their as well as the best location for pizza, check it out here.
Courmayeur has been hosted the first leg of the Freeride World Tour this past week. The first competition day was forced to be postponed due to bad weather and only 8 riders completing the face. They finally completed the event today, the 22nd January in clear skis, check out the results and videos here.
Now the Freeride World Tour heads over to Chamonix so hopefully we will see some good edits coming from the riders while they are in the Valley and a good competition.
