Drew's solo mission up Seegrube

So today I decided to venture from our house up in the hills above Innsbruck to check out a jump thats being built for us at Seegrube (say-grub-a). Seegrube is one of the many local resorts surrounding Innsbruck but its the only one that has a transport up to the tram from downtown. The first stop was at a little grocery store to find some food. I dont know where the miscommunication in my very broken German happened but I thought I asked for a ham and cheese sandwich. I got one sandwich with ham and one with cheese. Me being the clever person that I am, I took the cheese off one and put it on the other, killing it I know.

The Sandos

I love the mustard here that comes in the little self-serve toothpast container.

I got to the top of the tram and found my way through the mist over to the jump where Nick Franke (shaper) was working on the trannie. Its hard to see in the photos but the take off was built with a cat and it goes to a natural hip style landing. It will be intresting to see if it even works to be honest. Check back....

It was so misty at the top it was hard to see where the Apres-Ski was going down... ten o-clock to twenty o-clock.
