Italian Powdah!

We went south to sample some of the Italian stuff. And it was really nice to be there. Though it was cold on the upper slopes, maybe -30 with wind chill, the skiing was fine. We had an entire valley to ourselves, room enough to lay down some fresh tracks... The back of Mt.Fort was supreme the day before. It was good fun laying first tracks in these lift access couloirs. I took no camera, as it looked to be a white-out day. But the sun shone for a few hours, in time for us to ski another untracked couloir and bowl back to Verbier. Pierre-Alain Luisier promised me it will not be this cold and snowy again over Easter for the next 25 years! The forecast is calling for variable weather for the next few days, with sun in the afternoons and warmer weather from Friday...
