    Capacity for survival may be the ability to be changed by environment.

    iPhone: airplane mode. Girl: skating mode. Workout: cross-country skiing. Distance: 20km. Weather: snowing (for days already). Result: tired and very happy.

    I just love these windy tracks. And the feeling of achievement afterwards.

    SHADES OF WINTER CAMP Engelberg presented by GoPro from Sandra Lahnsteiner on Vimeo.

    Shades of Winter Camp Engelberg presented by GoPro | 17th – 20th December 2015

    16 girls from 7 nations came together to explore the amazing off-piste opportunities Engelberg-Titlis has to offer. There is a reason why Matilda Rapaport moved herself to Engelberg and calls it home! Coached by the Shades of Winter athletes Matilda, Melissa Presslaber and Sandra Lahnsteiner they girls left inspired, full of confidence, with new avalanche awareness and most important – as a group of new friends. A weekend full of passion among rippin’ ladies! Get inspired!

    PS. I should move myself to Engelberg too..

    Edit 14.7.2018 and I really made Switzerland my second home, though not Engelberg (yet?).

    I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
