The Monastery at the col de St. Bernard

A short climb on skis to this famous
monastery.

A glance out my window showed me the Foehn was
up, and I was not to forget my outer layer of Gor-Tex to cut the
wind.



Frank and I skinned to the col
St.Bernard to start our winter season. A superb winter ambiance greeted us the
moment we stepped out of the car- the wind was blowing
snow
everywhere!

We still do
not have much snow. Skiing is possible in Verbier on artificial snow- Lac des
Vaux and down to Ruinettes. But one needs to go a bit higher, say above 2500
meters, to get into the natural stuff with any depth at all. The forecast calls
for more snow tonight, so things are slowly shaping up…
