It's the final meltdown....
With temps now above +10 celcius, and warmer temps forecast for next week, up to +17c, the late, but excellent snowfall we had here in Austria the last 2 months is steadily melting away. Except for a few of the north facing slopes, the rest of the mountain is one big pile of slush. I was out riding yesterday, in a T-shirt (in February), at least I had my jacket on, but took it off while still riding, and continued down the very wet slopes with gloves off and jacket slung over shoulder. Now there is some snow forecast for this weekend, but how much is anybodies guess, however, the temps are set to remain high. Could this be it? I hope not, but with 26 days out, riding 180 lifts and over 500km of slopes, I think I have done well enough. I know these numbers as the electronic key card system logs all your lifts, but it only takes an educated guess at which runs you might have taken. Either way, I will raise a toast to the season! It has been good, so far.
So, how is the season going in your part of the world?
