It’s been quite some time since we’ve had fresh snow. Not that I’m complaining. It’s certainly been one of the best winters in the 30 years I’ve been skiing and climbing in this Valley of Bagnes. But it does create new challenges! I’ve been traveling to neighboring valleys in search of fun, soft snow, and even driving hours, getting close to Nice to play in a meter of fresh powder.
Last week’s Foehn hammered the snow on many aspects, and the high temperatures created fine spring snow on the southern slopes and awesme crust on some northern aspects. But still, these Alps offer fun for the enthusiastic!
Below are a few photos of the skiing we have been doing. A month after it’s snowed, we’re Powder Hounds, sniffing out some soft, 3 dimensional snow.
