Movie made by Jake O’Neal, visiting from Colorado. Witnessed by Franzi Leberl

A DAY OF X-MAS 2015-SKIING AT SANKT ANTON WITH JODOK SCHAEFFLER IN 18 MINUTES

Jodok Schäffler, one of my Graz doctoral graduates in Telematics (1997), was then living in Atlanta (Georgia, USA). As a native of Bezau in Vorarlberg he is familiar with the Vorarlberg-side of the Arlberg (Lech, Zürs). He  visited St. Anton for a day of exploring the Tyrolean Arlberg. Snow coverage was modest, but it was cold, very sunny and the snow quality was good. Jodok had a hidden camera built into his goggles and filmed our runs. These are 18 minutes of selected scenes.

SKIING VIDEO CLIPS FROM THE ARLBERG, 2009 TO 2012

Six video clips from St. Anton, taken under various conditions, all but 2 by son Franzi. The first 2 clips are from the Schindler-Rinne, one in fresh powder, the 2nd (by Milan Sonka from Iowa City) on a sunny day with a hard-packed surface. The 3rd clip is down Schweinströge. Remaining clips show Maienwasen and the run from Galzig to St. Christoph.
