neni Lol, today was incredible... it snowed all night, but in the morning, again, the local wind pushed the clouds away and we had blue sky at our mtn. Yeeha, guys, get your butts out of bed, we'll be riding pooooow!



Managed to get 4 laps till the wind broke down and the mtn got enwrapped in snow loaded clouds again.
Beautiful deep pow in steep open terrain, big fast turns, throwing huge roostertails... couldn't help but had to yell out of joy sooo many times sooo love our backdoor playground

You'll probably be lucky, it's getting colder this week and will snow each day till Tuesday. A nice base will build up till you're here

neni Those are the days... clouds n snow was announced all day... vis was indeed bad, but made for some nice pow runs in selected terrain with some rocks n trees for better orientation.

Wanted to call it a day at noon cos those runs were tracked and vis bad... 15min in the bar? A west wind hit in, pushed the clouds away and BAM! Bluebird! Common guys, time to bootpack some completely untouched runs on higher peaks! and gosh, that pow there was pure awesomeness!

Tatanka Head Well, you timed it right. It is looking great down there right now. Two friends in different areas (Leysin and Gstaad) just sent pics. South is getting lots of love.

Friday night we're driving down to Cervinia for a few days and will go over to Zermatt on at least one of them. Then we're going start heading back towards the UK maybe stopping at Pila for a day on the way to Chamonix for a few more. I've a friend who's in Verbier (never been) and others in Morgins (love the place) so those are options also. The second half of the trip will be based on likely conditions.

I'm double super stoked because my best university buddy, the very reason I snowboard, and one of my closest friends is coming for the first time in a few years. He and the other guy that took me the first 5 years have been busy with wives and babies and jobs and houses and I've been having to go with skiers recently. They're good mates but they're skiers so meh.

Anyway stoked!
