The snowiest village on earth

Going back to the ‘snow triangle’ theme, Damuls in the Bregenzerwald labels itself as the ‘The snowiest village on earth’.

We had a post today asking for more information on the snowfall stats in the Alps which I am trying to dig out. This image above taken toward the end of April 2008 is indicative of the snow that the Arlberg and Bregenzerwald regions in Austria get. I was impressed by the snow pack that day but the guy I was showing the region to insisted we jump off the ski bus and photo this scene. The image was taken just above Stuben am Arlberg and yes there was a mighty snow pack even if I was blasé about it at the time.
