Hey Alex:
the first picture sure looks like a "front" taste, more than a "back" taste! :P

But in any case: gee ... they look good!!!!

Thanks 4 the efficient organisation of the WE (Sam, Pat, Jacques, Balthazar, the IT dudes...). That was cool.

This is a flickr link towards my Zinal 2009 pics album. If you're not a flickr member you won't be able to download it (1024x768) but registration is free. I don't have another easy & fast way to share it (open the album with diaporama).

Not everybody's in there, sorry, but I'm sure Vahur got you :wink:

This year the number of early maniacs has increased tremendously....I never made it first on the slope.... :angry:

TOP FIVE tricks to get first to the slope (the originator):

1) Pass on top of Alex body to get to La Corne... (Benji)
2) Tell Silber to set up the alarm one hour later because the time is changing during the night (The Blitz)
3) Pretend to be in the Swoard staff to get on the first gondola (Silber)
4) Fight your way through chairlift line (Patrice - yes..we have you on camera punching Alex!)
5) Bribe the lady at the chairlift on La Corne to go up earlier (Oleg? these Russians..just joking!)

Anyway a BIG THANK YOU to Patrice, Jacques, Nils (sorry you couldn't make it!) and all the Swoard Team for another SUPER ECS!!!!!

We bribe for everything :-) even if we do not need to do so, this is our national sport!!

Which Oleg tried to do? There was two :-)

Fourth ECS for me, if I count right.
I'd say it was the perfect balance of organization and freedom.
Better than pro. :clap3:

A big thank you to everyone, organizers and participants !
This was a beautiful event. 8)

I'll miss many of you during one year. So now is time to set next meetings. :wink:


P.S.: As the number of participants is still growing, next year Zinal grooming staff will have to invent a way to groom the black slopes twice... or thrice a day. :twisted:

Absolutely amazing!!
My 2nd ECS, first with The Swoard, finally :D What a weapon!
I'd say that was incredible to meet so many carvers from all the Europe, they increased so much from the last year!! (even the skills, not only the number!!)
Already countdown for the next one

ECS bracelet

Post by AZ » Thursday 5 February 2009, 19:25

Just out of curiosity:
who is still wearing the blue or red bracelet for admission to the ECS 2009 events?

Let's see who takes it off last.

Me? Of course I still have it on my right wrist!
I wear it VERY proudly.

Ciao to all.
