Chamonix last days of April 2017

The place where I live and Herve place,
just on the opposite side of the Alps
Life and eternity, so far and so close!
Chamonix was wake up on Friday in white,
ten centimeters of snow in the wally, so
cool for Herve last farewell! Crowd of friends,
coworkers, family, supporters and Alpine
mountains legends, come to say goodby
to this strong man! In silence with the snow flakes,
everybody and everyone was touched his way!
Later on the day, Herve send us blue sky and
white mountains, as he know the best!
Meet Maneint family. Katie, Artur, Loui,

friend Philou and almost whole Scott team,

RIP Herve

Dear Friends,
Over the weekend  I get the information we loose our friend
Herve Maneint last Friday,  So sad and I loose all my words to say!
Living in Chamonix, Herve live his dream, he was the legend and
Herve will remain the Legend of the mountain and the sport!
The real mountain lion from Chamonix and the Alps!
I was working with him for almost 20 years,
sharing the passion of the wintersport
and Scott products connected to this! The loose is big.

My deepest sadness and compassion to his wife and the sons!

Rest in piece Herve
Eternity is so close, crape diem! Live the life fully!

One of the last expeditions in the mountain....

Jetpack Challenge 2017

Mahalo
last year the Jetpack project was covered from my side
http://drlojz.blogspot.si/2016/05/jetpack-challenge.html

Urban Jet skiing of the best!
For 2017 nobody can stop Filip Flisar to be in time at Lunch!
http://newatlas.com/skier-jetpacks-city/48166/


Thru the city back home!
Full video to see here..........strap on please! Filip is incredible!

http://www.redbull.com/en/snow/stories/1331846882047/filip-flisar-jetpack-maribor-video-2017

----------------------------------------
As Filip says:
Skiing fast with a jetpack in an open field is one thing, blasting across asphalt, granite steps and icy concrete in the middle of the main square proved to be a totally different story
----------------------------------------

The back pack get some modifications, for better force angle, safety issues etc!
The Jet tubine survive all the speed, some crash tests, only below zerro temperatures
was a bit problematic to start the engine! All in all two days in Maribor with RedBull team and Flisar,
again unforgettable!

Enjoy the life
