Yes! Also in Finland. Now able to hit some local hills if they were any worth it, hah!

Let's hope the weather stays frosty and we get a good base in the alps!

neni Heavy snowfalls in the high alpine let me do another last splittour. Was sort of an experiment cos I actually didn't expect to reach the peak... 10km distance over glacier along cerracs and crevasses; 1550m vert ascent to the 3320m peak.

The last 100m of the ascent I had to fight against giving up and turn around; glace fixated to the split, counting the steps and trying to keep the endorphins flowing...

And... super stoked that I did reach the peak (midseason I struggled to sustain a 1000m ascent and thought that is my limit)

Unfortunately, the wind has blown the 40cm pow from Monday away and the warm temps turned the snow into mush even that high up but it still was a blast, beautiful scenery, fun to venture BC a last time while down in the lowlands spring is full on with >20°C and ppl wear t shirts.

Target today: the round broad peak in the sunlight

Early rise and ascent over the glacier on the left side



She's getting closer... halfway up. Phewww... air gets thinner

Rewarding view from the peak; how lucky we are to be in the middle of a blue sky while half the country is beneath a cover of clouds

Tatanka Head I thought the season was over. 30cm expected tomorrow. Just got the go ahead for Saturday from my wifey, aka the boss, aka my younger old lady... So I'm pretty stoked. I just about packed the season in. I'm hoping the rest of Switzerland packed it in.

My neighbor recently took the ski-rack off his wife's wagon and and is already parking his mid-life crisis Ferrari outside of his garage. This indicates a change in seasons.

snowangel99 DH = Dear Husband

I have always used DH. Its just a habit. I use DD for dear daughter and DS for dear son. Its just what I do. It means nothing other than I am lazy and its shorthand.

I noticed Neni uses SO (this one is often interpreted as unmarried but attached or gay partner) and lots of guys on here say wifey or boss or the wife. lol. whatever works for ya!

And now that I know it's sarcastic and cheeky I like it even more.

I've seen you use that abbreviation a number of times. I finally googled it.

Hof (2006) writes that DH is not merely shorthand meant to save time, but a "cheeky reference". Drentea & Moren-Cross (2005) write that using DH and DD help stressed-out women maintain their "good mother" social role by softening complaints about their families. The usage of "dear" can also be sarcastic. Owens (2007) writes that DH "suggests a certain distancing".

Honestly, I haven't checked on the PC yet. I'm such an smartpone person... very rarely on the PC and the phone app doesn't have that info. I knew the slope from the guide, I regularly try to gauge pitches to back up or adjust the guess to get a better feel.

Haha, the watch thingy is awesome, tho atm it keeps me more occupied with eating. Aaaw dang, I'm still x cal below the daily target, aiii, go to fridge and stuff something more . Really love it. Very interesting to monitor HR intensity of the different sports I do (dressage vs resort snowboarding vs XC horseriding vs touring vs rowing).
