Leysin backcountry

Text by Johann Baisamy:
After Avoriaz we went back to Serge’s place in Leysin where a kicker awaited us. Unfortunately the wind had once again fucked up the landing for the second time we wanted to hit this spot (but the spot still waits for us…) So we had to find something else to clean up for the day. We had fun on a step dow to get some shots for the podcast.
The snow changed fast and most things were getting baked so we deepened out search into the north only facing areas to find some fresh snow. We then ended up on a road gap (that was pretty flat) where coincoin showed off his legs of steel stomping 2 tricks. Then the next day we shaped THE KICKER, not too big but it was definitely working. And in backcountry it’s not easy too find spots that are working! After a few hours shaping no one wanted to hit it first, Tyler lost rock’paper’scissors and landed a back 3 into a nice layer of crust! So we held off again till the next day when the sun would melt the crust layer and get better light. So as expected the next day, everything was perfect, 14 tricks put down between 3 riders. It had never happened to me before and i was stoked! Coincoin wasn’t very happy stomping some tricks because they weren’t as perfect as he wanted them. Ty cleaned up in style as usual with a swb5 and a back5 in the bag. Everyone was stoked and deserved a good rest and a good meal by out star chef Serge. A couple days later we peaced out to Mayrhofen in Austria for the next show.
