A dreamlike weekend with a climb up on a 2447m high summit and runs through 30cm fresh untouched powder fields experienced the 14 participants at the elooa SPLITBOARD BASE CAMP presented by K2 SNOWBOARDING.

Equipped with the brandnew K2 Splitboard models Ultrasplit, Joy Driver, Split Bean, Panoramic and Northern Light as well as avalanche safety gear from BCA BACKCOUNTRY ACCESS, the participants hiked up on Friday evening in snowfall with headlamps together with our mountain guides to the 1761m high mountain hut, our base for splitboard-tours on the following days.

Blazing sunshine and 30cm fresh pow was waiting on Saturday morning. Perfect conditions for our day tour to the Schwebenkopf. During the hike up everybody received valuable tips on themes like splitboard technique and avalanche safety. Blissful happy the campers reached a plateau just under the summit on almost 2350m. A well-deserved lunch break and after an awesome run down through high alpine snowfields packed with 30cm fresh powder followed. In the afternoon a practical avalanche safety training happened. Back in the rustic mountain hut, a strengthening dinner was served and after a theoretical keynote about avalanche safety followed to be prepared for the next day.

Sunday started with almost perfect conditions again and so the climb of the Schafsiedel peak with 2447m was possible. After that an endless long run down through powder fields, pillow and forest sections to the starting point in the valley ended this camp. Smiling faces recapped this weekend and made sure: „Thanks elooa and Servus until the next camp!“

An absolutely unforgettable and snow-rich weekend came to an end and we are looking forward to the next elooa SPLITBOARD CAMPS - maybe also with you!
