////// Touring Lines EP1 from Koen Bakkers \\ wittelijnen.com on Vimeo.
A short series of backountry lines filmed in the French Savoy Alps of La Plagne.

Each line involved touring or other mountaineering aspects. The journey of approach is part of the mental voyage for this single line a day. In search for the state of endless flow, experienced in the great outdoors.

A cooperation by skier Koen Bakkers and Jeroen van Schaick filming.

The never ending winter - ski touring & sidecountry happiness

Retour in NL.

Een laatste edit van deze magistrale sneeuwwinter.
Applaus voor de goedgezinde wintergoden.

The never ending winter – ski touring & sidecountry happiness from Koen Bakkers \\ wittelijnen.com on Vimeo.
Images of the last part of the 2013 season in La Plagne - France. Heaps of snow during this entire winter. Spring hasn't been around. A snowbase of circa 3 meter+ still high up at 3000 meter at the time the resort is closing.

Skitouring in search for appealing mountain peaks but as well some instant happiness to be found in the sidecountry closer to home. Sweet dreams of this never ending winter.
