As much as I love snow, it's still nice when it starts melting and those alpine jumps become accessible again. I wish spring would last longer: you can still go ski up high, but lower down you have other options - including barbecue. And I really like the looks of the alps at this time of the year. Great start into the wingsuit season together with @tim_howell_adventure, who took the pic.
Good feeling crossing the finish line of the Patrouille des Glaciers 2018 race. After 4000m of altitude gain and more than 60km we actually felt quite good. Even though there were times of suffering it was a great experience. And I'm most thankful for the great vibe we always had in our team. Big thanks to our support team @severinhefti17 and Lea.

Apparently my watch really thinks I might enjoy running races😂 Well, with 92kg I'm not exactly built like a runner. And my watch can't see the boredom in my face when I'm running😂 I think I'll just stick to running for training. What do you think?
Fresh pow in spring....yeah, bring it on! Barbecue and tanning can wait! More of this please!
Ice ice baby! Preparing for alpine wingsuit adventures:-)
I wouldn't mind having winter all year long...if it were like this:-)
These absolutely unique and beautiful sights thanks to atmospheric inversion layers make it totally worth dressing up and getting airborne in winter.

While being anywhere outdoors I want to enjoy the action and not worry about keeping my gear safe and dry. The answer is simple: @subtechsports. The version 2.0 of their award-winning water- and shockproof bag has already overreached the Kickstarter goal by 400%. Get one of the remaining few bags while there are still some left.

Giving the cameraman a new haircut;-) Flybys are always exciting and great for some slow-motion video footage. Together with the producer and the cameramen we scope the terrain at and around the flyby spot so we know exactly how we'll be approaching and flying by. Sometimes it's also a good idea to secure the people on the ground with some ropes so they don't fall off as a result of our turbulences...and our awesomeness;-) In this case we were shooting for the latest @nuitdelaglissefilms movie #dontcrackunderpressure season 3.

Point of no return. Once you step off there's no going back. Gravity takes over! That's why thorough preparation is so important. We also have special procedures to ensure we jump at the right place at the right time. Furthermore, when jumping from helicopters good communication and agreed procedures with the pilot are crucial.

Great night with this awesome family at the big Nuit de la Glisse premiere in Paris.
A good plan and thorough preparation is crucial for safe wingsuit flying in the big mountains and for successful film shots. For the entire flight route we analyze the angle of the terrain so we don't end up in terrain that's flatter than our glide performance. We prepare reference and decision points, plan B, helicopter exit location and altitude, landing zone, cameramen placement and many more things. Going through that again while being on the spot helps us also taking conditions and weather into account. If necessary we scope the terrain on foot, with a helicopter or by making a mellow reconnaissance flight with our wingsuits. It takes a lot of time, but it's totally worth it: safe flights, efficient film shots and great footage.

Here's why it's been a little quiet on my Instagram for a while: I've been super busy with the marketing of this year's @nuitdelaglissefilms movie "Don't Crack Under Pressure - Season 3". Experiencing the excitement and stoke of the audience in a full cinema, however, pays off for the hard work - here at the premiere in Lucerne on Switzerland's biggest screen together with @redbull.
Check out the awesome trailer of the new @nuitdelaglissefilms film! We did some mindblowing wingsuit flying this year. I'm proud and thankful to have been part of this crew for six years now! I wouldn't trade anything for the memories I made and the friends I met. Premiere events starting on November 9 and in cinemas across Europe in December. ⚡️️ Find your nearest screening at: http://www.nuitdelaglisse.com/booking @tagheuer @sony @airtahitinui @tahititourisme @62nord @montblanc_nr @bulaeurope

Ah, finally, a little weather break, allowing me to do what I like most (I know, my face seems to disagree😂): Running up mountains for endurance training, and then flying down with a wingsuit, skipping the part I admittedly don't fancy much: hiking down. Saved so much time I could do the whole thing twice for a total of 2000m altitude gain:-) And to top off this carbon footprint friendly day I repaired my GPS flight recorder instead of throwing it away. Now, where was I planning on going heli-skiing this winter?😉
This has got to be one of my most memorable multi-sports adventures this summer during Ekstremsportveko hosted by @bulaeurope. Instead of taking the car from Voss to Gudvangen in order to go wingsuit BASE jump, I decided to fly there with my paraglider and join my buddies for an afternoon jump. Didn't expect to make the whole distance (50km) on my first flight in Norway. So I was super stoked when I reached that amazing fjord, landed and went for a beautiful afternoon wingsuit jump. That's the #bulagoodlife :-) What's your perfect adventure?
