Slalom kids and huge backpacks

Every time I go to Hintertux for some off season shred action, I have to share the gondolas with kids and huge bags.
It seems that although they are on the mountain for approximately 3 hours each day they have to take everything they own. What on Earth could they be carrying in these backpacks- a pair of shoes, a hoodie, bottle of water and some sandwiches will all fit in a normal backpack. Can someone solve the mystery of the kids with the huge backpacks? Is this a fashion or are they carrying something important?
Please enlighten me.

tackiest item in the world

Found this in the local garage today.
A bra and pantie set - shaped as a flower.
Would any girl in the world wear underwear bought in a garage? 

Hintertux shredding

On Saturday the hungerpain house and guests Elias, Tyler and  Emeric decided to go for a group shred. 

Tyler has the best moustache in snowboarding- (sorry Joonas) He looks like a floating head

Here are a couple of shots of Hintertux- note the contrast of the valley to the glacier. We were going to ride down but decided against it.
I also found my new favourite vehicle, this van converted to a bull. Like the dumb and dumber van- with less fur.
