Powder paradise followed by powder heaven

Innsbruck snow-pack

This is no ordinary snow-pack!

Yesterday was a mighty good day to be on the slopes – today was as good as they get in the Alps. For those with a smug smile on their faces as they walked through resorts with equipment dripping powder remnants, it must have felt like things couldn’t get better. Well today offered frigid air and cloudless skies that lit up the untracked areas that lay everywhere. Sure there was plenty evidence of powder fun yesterday in all the tracks that were laid down in mixed light – today though was like opening a brochure on the highlights of skiing in the Alps. There were limitless views, strong sun for those on the terraces, frigid air to make sure the powder maintained its superb consistency and groomed carpets next to the banks of off-piste powder. It is a tough call singling out a day of the season but today was right up there for sure. Much more snow and there will have to be some shovel work going to – accessing a ski route today there wasn’t a great deal of clearance below a avalanche detonation winch cable – the near miss was soon forgotten though!
