Valais Central Super Classic

We just got back from a superb week in these hot Alps, ski touring between the Valaisanne and Bernese Alps.

The weather has been HOT this past week in these Alps. What a wild winter it has been. It was so mild over Christmas, then so cold in February, and now, suddenly so warm!

But this past week gave us superb spring conditions, allowing us to descend long valleys to villages on both side of the "rostigraben". Riding lifts out of the Loetschental and skiing into Leukerbad, over the Gemmi and down to Montana-Crans, then over to Lenk and Adelboden before hopping a train back to the Valais, sent us carvin on cool corn at warp speed! Have a look at the photos! (small version)

I was a bit shocked to see how much snow had melted when I returned to Verbier. People look at the southerly slopes above town and declare skiing finished. Excellent! Leave the smooth corn to us! Bye, bye.

The forecast is calling for more mild weather. We will remain under this low for another 2 days, then we should see clear nights again.

I am gearing up for Greenland again this year. I still have 2 spots left for the weeks April 26-May 3, and May 3-May 10. If you have not seen the photos, have a look here.
