Quick Fix

It’s December and there is a snow drought. Many low lying resorts in Europe did not open. So, the safest bet was to head for somewhere a little higher, like Cervinia. I was very impressed that the resort had managed to open a piste all the way back into the village.P1020244

Up on the Glacier, shared with Zermatt, things looked much the same as normal. P1020235

I was quite pleased with my set of short turns!

Zermatt had also worked some magic with their snowmaking, and opened a piste down as far as Furi.P1020242.JPG

A little fresh snow fell, and I think this group are having a lesson off piste above Trockener Steg P1020185.JPG

I caught the train up to Gornergrat, which is always a little surreal.P1020195.JPG

I spent most of my time on the Zermatt side, because the snow was in better condition.

I also got to ride a shiny new chairlift!P1020238.JPGP1020206.JPGUp above Trockener Steg

Chris from Tinderbox came over for a day, to work on some skills with me. We made the best of the conditions! P1020175.JPG
