Busy weekend. Been riding freshies all weekend even though it's some days since the last dump. Top section opened first time this year, yay, an entire peak with untracked snow
After chewing up every foot, Sunday it was earn your turns day to get more fresh to ride in perfect bluebird weather.
No snow in the forecast; stable snow pack, more bluebirds... perfect time to go BC .

|neliconcept||Neni, which resort do you hit up? You said you live near Interlaken right? I've stayed in a small town called Merligen off north side of Lake Thun so I thought about doing a quick day trip from Basel to Wengen or Grindelwald. Think it would be worth it for just a day (train to and from Basel in the same day)|

I'm from Toronto and will be flying to the UK on business in Late February/Early March - the plan is to fly and shred somewhere in the Alps. Anywhere.
Anywhere you recommend in particular? I know pow is unpredictable, but i'd rather take steep and deep rather than groomed runs. I can hit jumps and boxes here in Canada anytime. A little scenery, something different, and something a little cost-effective. I know it'll be pricey wherever I go, but I don't need ritzy. I may even buy and bring a split board for back country.
I signed up to this forum, to ask this only question - I await your recommendations! thanks,

It was the dude in red's third ever trip! How lucky can you get?

Lol, after a day of riding pow, legs already pretty toast, the getting back to the cabin was connected with quite some sweat the 1km usually takes us 10minutes. Today it was a 40min fight trough the meanwhile hip to waist deep untracked snow.
What a difference! 10 days ago this slope was green grass.
You guys who were scared about your planned/booked trips to the Alps: no worries! The goods have arrived! This weeklong dump made for a good base; been riding pow all day and didn't get one scratch; it's all nicely covered meanwhile.
Resort didn't open the top section today (high winds). Fingers crossed that those lifts will run tomorrow There are soooo many untracked runs up there!!! (And BTW: it's still snowing )
