An extremely dry start to winter had been plaguing all of North America when Will, Shane, and LJ Strenio (subbing in for Andy) headed to Europe for the second Traveling Circus overseas episode.

While the news of recent snowfall throughout Switzerland and Austria had everyone’s fingers crossed for at least one solid pow-day, the initial plan for the twelve-day tour had been mapped with out some of Europe’s best terrain parks in mind.

Once landing in Germany the Euro TC Crew assembled and realized that Will, LJ and Shane all had lost luggage, including their ski gear. With nothing to do but wait for delayed bags, the group clocked some serious Internet time and realized the upcoming forecast included loads of new snow, every day, for as long as the Euro weatherman could predict.

After three nights of extensive baggage tracing and confusing phone calls everyone had their skis and the group packed up the two RVs that had been rented for the trip. Max Hill and Laurent Favre took a few days off filming with Legs of Steel join in with the caravan.

The storm system over Austria and Switzerland made for all time epic conditions, and after a short two days of castle jibbing in Austria the TC Euro crew realized that their planned week of park riding had just turned into a full blow pow mission, fueled by magical Bavarian cheese noodles and only limited by wet ski boots and two-wheel drive rental vans with summer tires…
