Man on the Ground - Ben Walker
My name is Ben Walker. I will be trying to keep you guys updated as to what's going on in Switzerland. I am a trailbuilder in the Portes du Soleil on the Swiss side and am responsible for trails like the Freeride and Downhill trails in Morgins and the Swiss Championships DH track in Les Crosets. Some of the stuff I have built has been in the Kranked videos namely Kranked 6 and 7 in Porter's segments. I will also let you guys in a bit on the secret spots in and around the Portes du Soleil......like Chatel back to the Swiss side with 45min of downhill singletrack.
I have been building a lot lately but sad to say none of this building is happening in the mountains...too much snow. I built 3 jump parks in 3 weeks but all at the bottom of the valleys. I am starting to stress a bit because I am also a producer/builder for Radical Films and we start filming for the next Kranked video at the end of the month. I am going to have to get out the big machinery and do it all at the last second. Once I figure out how to put photos up here I will show you guys some of the progress up in the hills of the Portes du Soleil.
That's all for now.
