Today I got first chair thanks to “Volantaddict” from the “Barking Bear Forum”. He is one if this guys waiting in line for an hour before opening. When I arrived at the chair it was about 9:10 and only a dozen or two other guys where already waiting. By 9:30 a few more but still not bad at all.
The mountain was covered in light and untouched powder. The wind really did a great job. Boot and knee keep powder almost everywhere. Today the mountain got tracked a bit faster then yesterday. By late afternoon it was still possible to find untouched powder but not all the way down.
Another great day and for sure a mountain to ski again asap.
I should mention the après ski. There’s a bar at the base where all the locals meet right after skiing. Lot’s of beer and great conversation. A place where you can easily meet the always friendly locals.
No new snow in the forecast and my legs are killing me if I ski another day without a break.
Sorry to have missed you at the bar paedde, you must have left before I finished the last run (the lift stopped before I made it down the hill), otherwise I expect I would have seen you, as I was there 'til the cows came home.
