Ski Time!

WInter has jumped in and shown herself good. We
have 50+cm in Verbier, making for some fine skiing.

I had a fine run off Ruinettes yesterday. What a
special feeling that was, floating and flying downhill in deep powder- Best run
of the season! 😉 Televerbier opens Saturday, November 17. It’s forecasted to
be clear and cold. Cold! Should be around -25 with wind chill. The Arctic door
will open with the Bise, the wind from the
NE.

Global warming comes front and
center with photos from Air Glacier pilot Roland Brunner. They show a very
impressive settling of the Grand Combin Glacier under the col du Tournelon
Blanc. They have to be seen to be believed. This is massive, and certainly
emphasizes my examination of future alpine
routes.

I am recently back from a fine
trip across the Bay of Biscay, through the Straits of Gibralter and on to Ibiza.
Petey and Kate’s 44 foot Alliage, aluminum cutter “Kiluna”, was a joy to sail.
Petey has got this boat so dialed in, it makes every moment a learning
experience. You almost want to try sail through a hurricane just to see her
survive. Ok, maybe not quite, but one sure feels safe on such a thought-out and
sea worthy yacht.
