a clip from the past

in 2001, when we filmed this little snowboard movie the lautaret was free of kite- crowds and lagrave was still a true secret spot only known to a handfull of riders.

We were storing our music on CD's and MC's, took fotos on chemical dia film and had them digitized on drum scanners, did all the filming on (back then top notch) handheld mini DV tape camcorders and used selfmade fisheye adaptors ... those were the days .... ,-)

Highlight of our 2001 trip was a descent of the legendary couloir Y in perfect conditions .... Ronald and I were the talk of the town that day.

This 13yrs later 2014 decent filmed by a film crew party with much better equipment which was guided by our Friend Joe Vallone gives a good overview of the "Y" in case you want to ride it yourself one day --> .... one tip: in case you suffer from fear of heights, the traverse is pretty hardcore ,-)
