Drew goes up to the Hut

After a bit of a party last night (Saturday, May 2nd) we woke up to clear skies and no wind. With a medium head ache I dragged my bags to the supply lift that takes everything up to the mountain hut we will be staying in for the next few days. The Hut is high above Maso Corto at 2485 meters. After dropping my bags I went to meet up with the rest of the crew only to roll up to a broken door/window. Clemont, one of the filmers was talking to a police man and explained to me later that he broke the window because he forgot his key inside and was cold. Good move at 6 AM and wasted I guess. 460 euros later the crew made it on the tram and up to the park. We didnt film because the park was open to the public and their was to many people cruising around and to be honest my motivation level was low. This Italian kid named Simon (See-mon) was killing it and I was content with watching him. We did ended up having a bit of a after noon session in the good light and stayed on at the park till 7:30. Then we made our way over to our hut to set up shop for the next week and with clouds in the forecast cabin fever could set in big time.

Nice move Clemont

A view of the park, with pretty ok looking lines above for May.

Looking down on Maso Corto... I feel like the Grinch.

Me and the Italians in the crew, Filippo and Lukas.

Simon on the hip
