Drew goes from Innsbruck to Italy

I have been living in a mountain hut (with no internet) high atop Val Senales for the last week so we are just going to back track to Friday, May 1st.

After 4 days of thunder clouds and wind, the sun came out. We made our way up Seegrube to the jump I talked about in the last post. Getting off the tram at the top with the rays from the sun blazing the jump looked pretty good. A few speed tests and some skimmer straight airs would tell us otherwise. The filmer Flo, told us that we wernt getting the pop we needed to make the jump worth filming and with the speed issues Filippo and I packed it up and headed for Italy.

Maso Corto is the village at the bottom of the resort Val Senales and it was only about 2 hours drive from Innsbruck. This weekend Val Senales is hosting a special park shoot for the Italian "Snowboard" mag and Italy's top snowboardrers. Filippo invited me to check it out and because this is where our Pirate shoot starts on Monday I though I could get a little warm up in. Today (saturday) we woke up bright and early to head up to the glacier but before I even got out of bed we got the word that the lift that accesses the park was closed due to high winds. Better luck tomorrow I guess...
Small car... even for Europe
