Fieberbrunn is a placed with gauranteed snow,” said the elder Fieberbrunn local Sepp Pletzenauer when interviewed for the Austria segment of Way Of Life. “It has the open terrain, nobody around, beautiful powder snow, and I just go and make my path.”
Sepp’s sagacious outlook on his home terrain proved to be more than accurate. The powder that Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, Dylan Hood, and Colter Hinchcliffe found there after a seven-hour detour due to “overgadgeting” proved to be not only deep enough to blind them (literally), but enough to win the nod for the year’s Best Powder segment from both the Powder Magazine Video Awards and, this past weekend, the Cold Smoke Awards. Tim Durtschi also nailed Best Male Performance for his Way Of Life segment.
