Winter arriving

Ask a Hintertuxer and they would say that winter never actually ends – they having the luxury of 365 day skiing. But elsewhere winter is very much upon us now with the Rettenbach Glacier above Soelden about to open for action this weekend. The glacier will be hosting the inaugural event on the FIS race calendar late October and we are hoping to be there.

To give you a birds eye of the upper glacier we took our Piste View cameras on the Schwarze Schneide 2 gondola and you can get a feel for the drama of the place on the 5 seconds or so flyover. Enjoy:
