this one is on the way up the beginning of the Dolomites looking back down...they really come out of nowhere

this is the base of Piancavallo

this is the kid who showed me around...hes a friend of the family who lives like 30 min away so he knows the place like the back of his hand

IMG_0968.jpg

this is a restaurant they had on the slopes at what I thought was the top...but then we rode up the last lift and hiked about 20 minutes to get to this peak

elevation ~7,300 ft...the snow was blowing constantly about 30-40 mph off this face (notice the grass) but down the other side there was some nice pow
