Some very nicely captured moments there. I personally like this Jacques teaching image:

For the 5th edition in 2008, the date won't be Feb 2-4 as announced previously. Indeed Eastern is so early in 2008 that the school holidays on February are weird. Local people have vacation from 2nd February already and all hotels will be full (no free rooms for only 1, 2 or 3 nights).

Thus the date will be Feb 16-18, 2008 (to be confirmed in autumn) :!:
This date is better because it's after the holidays of most Swiss cantons. People who plan to stay in Zinal one week should be there on Feb 16-23 (and not before 16th February: no free rooms).

great...it is better to organized EC when there is not so much other
skiiers and boarders...so there are more free rooms to reserve....

--- UPDATE ---

We got an headache with the professionals in Zinal (hotels, resort, ...) because Eastern is so early in 2008! On Friday evening 16th February we could have serious problems to get rooms for the participants (it will be full!).

Thus the less bad date is finally Feb 23-25, 2008 (to be confirmed in autumn) :!:

Not very wise because this is in the middle of the season of the dutch people. About 400.000 dutchies will go skiing, the last two weeks of February.

That's sad. I would have loved to see you guys carving the hell out of the slopes and learn as much as possible from you guys, but I definitely can't make it at that time. Sad, sad............

Yeah, me neither. That's right into my university's examination period. I will come back for the 09 meeting though definitely. ECS and SigiGrabner's (if Red Bull and Ischgl, SGS... continue their massive sponsoring) events are definitely in my opinion by far the best and most fun sports gatherings I've ever attended.
