neliconcept Got back the other day from my trip to Davos and Zermatt. Davos had more snow cover at elevation giving me more pow runs. Zermatt was a bit thin in places and I took a nice core shot to my Branch. Visibility was bad in the afternoon as well as a full day in Davos but I still had an amazing time! I may try some Prizm HI pink lenses next time I come in contact with bad visibility above tree line. The Yellow/Blue weren't getting it done.

We woke up to a scene from Mordor this morning: high winds and dust everywhere. The shy was brown for 10 minutes then it started to snow.. for about 5 minutes, then snow stopped and wind all day.

March used to be our snowiest month, now everything around here is bone dry and the fire danger is rated very high.

Ditto!!!

I'm gonna miss my french press & coffee on this PNW trip. I ALWAYS pack coffee service when I trek up north. The swill in the rooms is usually un-drinkable!

...and without my morning Joe, I'm not fit to go looking for a Starbucks in the morning.

Oh, and I'm just now realizing how much I missed the proper caffè corretto.

Nothing beats Italian coffee!

Hope you get hit by the storm which was passing by at ours today! Enjoy those Alps... I'm off!

elstinky Don't have pics, but today wasn't bad either. Light snow and a bit windy all day long but below 2000m or so visibility was good enough for bombing down the resort's pow-covered prepared pistes. Man did I forget how fun this can be, and ideal to crank up the technique. Also: Monte Rosa is freakin' awesome. We're used to bigger resorts in Austria (soelden, kappl, ...) but it's basically the same difference as there is between factories and small local shops: people are friendlier, food is better and cheaper, villages are smaller and cosier and covered in snow and make you feel like you're cut of from the rest of the world, and more often than not you're alone and it's just you and the snow (and depending on altitude, the trees and squirrels and birds). This sould never end.
