From last Friday to Sunday, all participants experienced an unforgettable splitboard weekend at the elooa SPLITBOARD BASICS CAMP presented by K2 SNOWBOARDING at Diedamskopf including great tours with lots of fresh powder as well as cozy mountain hut evenings with sauna and jacuzzi.
Equipped with the brandnew K2 Splitboard Marauder as well as avalanche safety gear from BCA BACKCOUNTRY ACCESS, the participants hiked up on Friday evening together with our mountain guides to the 1700m high mountain hut, our base for splitboard-tours on the following days.
Perfect conditions with 30cm of fresh pow were waiting on Saturday morning for various tours through untouched powder. During the hike up everybody received valuable tips on themes like splitboard technique and equipment. Blissful happy the campers reached a ridge on almost 2000m and an awesome run down through fresh pow followed. After a short lunch break an other ascent via the Neuhornbachjoch followed with a fantastic long powder run directly back to our hut, including an extensive avalanche training with search exercise. Back in the cozy mountain hut, a well-deserved dinner awaited us followed by a theoretical keynote on avalanche awareness.
Sunday morning offered again perfect conditions with more fresh powder and even sunshine and thus the Falzerkopf could be climbed. After a first untracked powderrun down followed by a short climb back up on the ridge, an endless long run down through fresh snow to the starting point in the valley ended this camp. Smiling faces recapped this weekend and made sure: „Thanks elooa for the great camp and Servus until next time!“
An absolutely unforgettable weekend came to an end and we are looking forward to the next elooa SPLITBOARD CAMPS - maybe also with you!
