Verbier Opens

TeleVerbier has decided to run the FuniSpace for the next 2 weekends. What wonderful skiing this provided us in the little Lac des Vaux and Ruinettes. After the dump of Halloween, the warm Foehn set in for the past week. These warm temperatures and more wet snow at high elevations caked these hills with a wonderfull base for this coming winter. The rain washed away all snow below 1800 meters, but what a fine substrate to slide on up high!

About Hans Solmssen

I am a professional mountain guide living in Verbier, Switzerland. I grew up on the Big Island of Hawaii after my father moved to Hawaii to teach at Hawaii Preparatory Academy. He created a horse program at this high school, located in the middle of the largest, privately owned cattle ranch in the US. Horses were a major part of my life, even playing polo for a few years. I moved to northern Vermont to go to school, and discovered skiing. Little did I know, this would become my life's passion: guiding friends and clients over the mountains around the world on skis and foot. I moved to Verbier, Switzerland in 1982, and entered the Swiss guide's program in '88. I received my UIAGM "pin" 3 years later in 1991. I have two kids, Anya and Kevin.
