Conditions were superb on the Stubai Glacier today with cool temperatures, strong sun and many national race teams on the glacier to prepare for the upcoming Solden FIS season opening race weekend. Bode Miller was up there training on the Daunscharte with the rest of the US team, as were many other national ski teams. The weather forecast is showing 5 days of snow from Saturday onwards meaning many of the local hils should be geeting a great base. As I drove back through the Stubai Valley the tractors were out in force spraying bio-manure on the fields – always a sure sign that the heavens are set to open.

Managed to fit in a ski on the Stubai Glacier, loosely disguised as a ‘snow report’ to work colleagues before the next bout of winter arrives over the coming days.
