Winters Crossing route map IMG_4034 IMG_4271

Young HH Ambassadors William Blouin-Comeau and Simon Sarty-Peterson, aka Team Wyred, are well versed and incredibly skilled at maneuvering their Hobie Tiger. Don't be fooled by the playful nature of it's name, the Hobie Tiger, part of the F18 competitive class is considered to be the ideal training platform for youth performance sailing and is a grass root feeder to America's Cup. Pushing the boundaries, as 18 year olds so often do, Team Wyred cooked up a challenge for themselves that would test their skills as sailors and the knowledge they have for their boat.

A final recap from HH Ambasasador Matt Elliott who finally caught up to Ullr up Les Grand Montets. "Chamonix didn't disappoint. It was a full on powder filled week. With such a short window (3 Days) to ski you really can't expect much. But we managed to time it just right. Day one was a 25cm blue bird powder day up on Grand Montets. Luckily I have ski'd here in 2011 and had an idea of where to go. So we headed down the "Glacier des Rognons" on the "point de vue" route. Blower pow turns and lots of excited ...

It seems as though following Ullr's footsteps from BC to the Swiss Alps was the right way to go.

Zermatt did not dissapoint.

So HH Ambassador Matt Elliott stayed hot on Ullr's tail and made his way to Chamonix.

Finding pockets of snow their first day out, they managed to keep entertained while waiting for an oncoming storm.

A brief update from HH Ambassador Matt Elliott who recently jumped on a direct flight to snow! Sounds pretty incredible..... "Being at such a massive resort is humbling. We have ski'd 3 days at Zermatt and barely scratched the surface. This place has so much terrain, glaciers, lines. cliffs, jumps, long powder runs. It's pretty awesome. We have spent a few days up on the Testa Grigia side of the Resort. You have to ride this 1/2 hr T-bar and you end up at 3439m and look right down into an Italian town called Cervinia. There's a whole other resort ...

If the POW will not come to Matt, then Matt must go to the POW.

It seemed as though Ullr played hopscotch right over BC this winter and left many of us, including HH Ambassador Matt Elliott, hungry for powder.

Unwilling to go the season without a few face shots, Matt and photographer Chris Christie packed their bags and jumped on a plane in hot pursuit of finding the magic touch of our beloved Norse god.  

Touch down Zermatt.

Lo and behold, sunshine, blue skies, and an abundance of white, fluffy, glorious snow.

Stay tuned as they send us more pictures of their spontaneous search for POW.
