Yesterday was the first clear day after 4 days of snowfall. What a feeling it was to be outside. The atmosphere was vibrant with freshness, giving energy to each turn in the first fresh powder of the season. Today, we went to Zinal, riding little half pipes and contouring the avalanche danger. It’s a moderate level 3, having settled a bit from Wednesday, when the last storm dropped half a meter + of new snow all over the Alps. What a nice scene it was in Zinal in the early season. There were very few people venturing off-piste, leaving us small side valleys to play alone in.
The forecast for next week is uncertain. It looked like more snow, but now the word Foehn is mentioned for mid-week… Fingers crossed for another few systems of unsettled weather.
