I was on 'Kamoshika' from www.idriskis.com my small eco friendly ski company ;)

 

You asked how Mr Plake was on the journey - well he had to keep waiting for me and didn't complain . Probably one of the nicest guys to ski with ;)

Unbelievable snow and terrain. That looks simply amazing. I could watch these videos all day. Thanks so much for posting.

I was supposed to be doing the Ingrid Backstrom Next Level Women's ski camp this weekend at Squaw but it was cancelled due to lack of snow and necessary open terrain.

I heard a rumor that one of the instructors who may or may not be named in the name of the clinic took a last minute trip to Cham(since the camp was cancelled) and is enjoying some sweet Cham goodness!

There's simply nothing like the Alps.

Beautiful. Looks like it was late in the day. How much vertical was that one run from the gate?

 

Kamashika from Idris Skis website:

So for the steep stuff pictured in your 2009 posts, would you ski the Chamois at 88mm/25m, the BigHorn at 98mm/19m, or the Bouqetin at 100mm/26m?

 

I would suggest you contact this website to get your company listed and maybe even have some skis tested. He often posts on epicski.

It was 10am lift, so 10.30 at the gate.

 

2800m or a little over 9000ft run and 8 or 9 miles long via our route - the voie touristique is 20+km (12+ miles)

 

Bouquetin prototypes is what I skied the Eugster on the north face of the Midi - In those conditions the Chamois would have been much nicer - the Bouquetin themselves have evolved since then  - they were wider, straighter.

I'd love to ski that stuff like that, but my wife would kill me first.

WOW!

It was almost too exciting for me working my way down when I was hooked onto the rope - I do not think I would risk skiing the spine. Skier's left is literally at least a mile almost straight down. The skier that stopped after 100m fall either had excellent self-arrest skills or was Very lucky or they would not have stopped. I put the chance of saving yourself on that side as one in 20, maybe.

Good for her.  Glad she is getting some work and fun out of an otherwise bummer.

Wow.....that is all I can say after watching that vid. So far and beyond anything I could ever dream of doing.
