Salewa Soultrip's Road To Nowhere With Max Zipser

Next Up

Austrian big mountain rider Max Zipser is in South America with the Alpine-X Team, raging the mountains of South America. And I call him The Zipsantor cause when we were in Alaska for the King of the Hill he got stuck in an avy and it threw him off a 30-40 foot cliff to flat, broke his back. Then three days later he competed in the King of the Hill and took 10th place! He's indestructable just like the charector an Austrian man named Arnold played in the movie Terminator.

One of many beautiful sunsets to come...

McFly, Björn, Max and the Volcano Villarrica

The first few days of our Salewa Soultrip we spent in Pucòn - Chile, a super nice village situated next to the active vulcano Villarrica.

Twice we tried to hike up to the summit, but weather did not allow us to make it to the very top...

Andrè Sommers' bus named "Bondi"

Nevertheless the unique landscape here is impressive and we really enjoy our trip. Living in Andrè Sommers bus called "Bondi" makes us flexible to go were the best conditions are and gives us the possibility to stay up on the to the mountains and enjoy epic sunrises and beautiful sunsets... Life is good!!

Max sightseeing - Santiago de Chile

When we arrived in Santiago de Chile, we spent one day sightseeing with our friend Nico Demetrio who showed us around and had tasty Chilean lunch (Pisco Sour, vino y mucho bife de lomo... mmmhhhhh). Later we took our flight to Temuco, where we met Andrè. Right now we had some good days in San Martin - Argentina.

The view of the Volcano Lanin from Chapelco/ San Martin de Los Andes

In San Martin de Los Andes we met up with our friend and local Tato Vasiuk. After some cold beer at "Tatos" bar, the next day we went up to Chapelco, where we did some hikes in the backcountry. Together we spend a few days up there and got nice runs. Totally siiiiiiick!!

todo tranquilo :) like everything here

Now that you made it up get ready to go back down...
