The Hintertux Glacier freestyle park was in full flow yesterday with a multinational mix of skiers and snowboarders taking advantage of the sunny weather of soft snow for landings. The wind picked up early afternoon which might have explained some of the missed landings but the break in action gave me the chance to chase down a ski ballerina – an exponent of a ski discipline that I thought was long extinct but seems to still thrive on the wide and gentle slopes of the Hintertux Glacier. I am not sure how much I captured of the display until I edited the video from yesterday but hopefully some as the action was priceless.
Skiing throughout the summer on the Hintertux Glacier
Back from an enjoyable day on the Hintertux Glacier yesterday, with great early summer skiing under blue skies and still with a great cover of snow.
