Pillow time in Avoriaz


Text by Johann Baisamy
“First backcountry session for me shooting with WhatWeWant. After a short sunny day in Leysin we decided to head to Avoriaz because snow was on the way which meant bad weather.
This was the first time I ever shot backcountry in Avoriaz, makes a change from only riding pipe there usually…
The conditions were so good we stayed an extra day or two. Time flies on busy days. We were pretty productive everyone got shots everyday, well almost…
Lets just forget about the first day where we all got pretty beat up, the spot didn’t quite work and after around 10 hits each we went home sore as hell and soaking wet!
Luckily the next day we had 30cm fresh and Coincoin got his shot.
We spent the next days in the forest shredding pillows. On the last day, legs burning we headed back to the same area to find our homies the videograss crew with Danny Larsen.
It was well fun to see so many riders together in the lovely forest.
I had a tough time keeping up with Tyler and Coincoin, they’re not on the first backcountry season and they pretty much land 75% of their hits!
But with patience, some advice and some sending I managed to get some shots.
Your gonna have to wait for the movie to see the bangers but here is a podcast to show whats going on+
After a nice sunday at home time to head to Leysin to follow the adventure in the next podcast.

PS : Big Thanks to Jean Noel for the lift passes and for treating us like a Baus!!”
