Freeride Snowboarding / Chasing Powder :) Go Pro Video TRIP REPORT

2년 전

Hello dear Steemians,

This is my first trip report this winter season, mainly because we dont have snow here in Slovenia. :(

Me and my cousin, decided to visit mount Bärenaunock in Austria(2293m / 7523ft). We had a 3 hour car ride to Innerkrems , where we started our hike, and as soon as we got there we got a nice welcome from the weather, it was lightly snowing and the sun was slowly rising :)

We hiked for three hours to reach the top, had a quick lunch , enjoyed the views and got ready for the best part, the ride down :D It was a great day , cant wait to visit those mountains again :)

Here are some photos from our hike up , and a Go pro video from our descent.

Let me know if you like the music in the video, its a New track ive been working on, thank you ;)

Peace, Shaka ;)

Thank you :)

Awesome pictures and video. How do you like the split board? Is it worth it?


Thanks man, glad you enjoyed :) i actually dont have a split , that was my cousin in the photos, but i gave it a try, and it is so easy to go up the hill even if theres powder :) so yes i would say its totally worth it , will have to get one soon :)


Cool. How did you hike up?

Back in the day, I lived in AK. I miss it and its great snow. At the time, I was thinking of getting one but did not have the money.

oh dude... love the GoPro vid... looks like hell of a fun ride down!


Oh man it was Epic :D cant wait to go again this week :D

Thanks ;)

hi... this picture really makes me feel happy... thanks... which Cam did you use?


Thanks man , glad you like it, i used Galaxy s7 for photos, and Go pro Hero 6 for video. :)

Love the great photos, and the Go-Pro video is awesome. Also great that you used your own music in the video. Looked like a fun trip. I would have a broken leg after about 5 minutes if I ever tried that, so it is great to watch others enjoying the excitement.


Thanks a lot for those kind words, im glad you like my trip report.

Have you ever tried any winter sports like snowboarding and skiing? :) Its so much fun , but it takes some practice , like all things :D

Stay tuned for more ;)

Peace, Shaka :)


No, never had the chance to get into skiing or snowboarding. I really do believe I would be the one that goes on a ski weekend and winds up falling 10 minutes in and then sitting back in the cabin in a cast for the whole time.


Hehe :)

Well if you ever decide to try it, i hope this wont be the outcome :)

If you think you would be falling a lot, i would advise trying it in spring time when the snow is soft and slushy, you will get wet but it wont hurt as much ;)

Where did you go if you don't have snow in Slovenia? This looks like a winter paradise :)

We had so much rain lately in Switzerland and today the sun is shining. I think we should not expect any snow anytime soon. Will have to go to the Alps probably.

It looks like you do various types of winter activities. Great! I like your photos but I find your video very exciting. How long was the slope?


Hey there,

thank you for commenting, i just noticed that a part of my text got deleted when posting, so i updated my post with all the info about the trip, if you dont mind reading it again :D

Oh nice, ive never been to Switzerland, ill have to visit your mountains one day too :D

We have some snowfall predicted for this weekend, but i think it wont be enough for freeriding, will have to go back to Austria :D

Peace, Shaka ;)
