Yeah, yesterday it's been snowing from 1200 mt asl upward...Good omen? I hope so, but webcams at my two favourites ski area don't show much white around. As usual, the northern wall of the Alps gets the most of any perturbation...Pray winter (but it's still early to have snow here on the southern flank) lest he forgets us...

got back from Austria just recently on our school skiing trip and although we were Ski Amade we went by coach and we past Salzburg, Zell am See and other areas en route and snow was soooo thick!!!


Great conditions - not a brown or green patch to be seen.ski.gif

I skied in Lermoos in Tyrol on Saturday. Puked all day, with minimal wind. Really one of my top days on skies. Most people were frightened off by the snow, so the hill was close to empty. A year ago on the same day (New Years Eve) there were big lift lines. Skiing above knee deep powder all alone in the afternoon on normally pisted runs. Just awesome.


Then it started to rain on the drive back to where we're staying (Oberammergau, Germany), and it was a torrential downpour all night. Woke up to see green hillsides where there had been two feet of snow 12 hours earlier.


Today was warm (9°C in Garmisch), but at least dry. I'll ski in Garmisch tomorrow, and hope it's OK. They do a great job of preparing pistes, and they looked fine from the village today. I'm guessing anything off piste will the crap, though.
