The next day the crew started up the camper again and headed towards Livigno on the Swiss border. On their way to the Eira Pass the riders discovered a wooden MTB vert, which turned out to be the perfect handplant spot! After a great session they continued their journey into Switzerland and stopped at Julier Pass. Exploring the backcountry with their splitboards, the riders soon found a nice natural quarter and had a fun session, which resulted in great shots.
Another day, another mountain pass: on their way to the 2300meter high Bernina Pass, which connects Switzerland with Italy, the crew found numerous creative features but in the end went for a "rainbow tree" and a corner with an extremely icy landing that wasn't easy to ride.
The next stop was the Ofen Pass, which offered better snow conditions: "This was my personal highlight of the trip", Peter Walchhofer said. "We brought a BBQ and guitar, built a fun kicker and had an incredible session with a lot of backflips, tweaks and beers." After a successful day and a week without a shower the crew had rightly earned a visit to the hot springs of Meran, in South Tyrol, and enjoyed their escape from the confines of the camper.
"Our first stop was the Passo Tonale in Italy. After we found a spot for the next day we spent a nice evening in front of the campfire drinking beers. Unfortunately we didn't know our camper too well and had to spent the night without heating." (Peter Walchhofer)
"The trip with the camper was definitely something different. You are so flexible and independent. Living with five people in a small room for ten days was something you need to get used to. You have to adapt to the group and also show respect to the others. But we quickly got along and had a lot of fun together." (Marc Großgasteiger)
