A dreamlike weekend with blazing sunshine and a climb up on a 2280m high summit experienced the 14 participants in our new location at the elooa SPLITBOARD BASE CAMP presented by K2 SNOWBOARDING.
Equipped with the K2 Splitboard models Joy Driver Split, Ultrasplit, Split Bean and Northern Light as well as the brandnew K2 Far Out Splitboard Binding and safety gear from BCA BACKCOUNTRY ACCESS, the participants hiked up on Friday evening together with our mountain guides to the 1380m high mountain hut, our base for splitboard-tours on the following days.
Blazing sunshine and a fresh snow covered Allgäuer mountain range was waiting on Saturday morning. Perfect conditions for our day tour to the Großer Daumen. During the hike up everybody received valuable tips on themes like splitboard technique and avalanche safety. Blissful happy the campers reached the summit on 2280m and enjoyed a breathtaking view over hundreds of other peaks. After a well-deserved lunch break an awesome run down through high alpine snowfields back to our hut followed. Back in the rustic mountain hut, a strengthening dinner was served and a theoretical keynote about avalanche safety followed to be prepared for the next day.
Sunday started again with blazing sunshine and so the avalanche theory could be put under an extensive practical test at a avalanche safety training. After that a long run down through very old trees and forest to the starting point in the valley ended this camp. Smiling faces recapped this weekend during a healthy lunch and made sure: „Thanks elooa and Servus until the next camp!“
Again an absolutely unforgettable weekend came to an end and we are looking forward to the next elooa SPLITBOARD CAMPS - maybe also with you!
