A trip of extremes: sunshine, blisters and fog, slush and powder, rainy snow showers and sweat A memorable trip in the spring-ish Silvretta range. Powder snow was hard to find, and so was good Italian coffee. But as stuborn as we are we did our best to find both….and guess… Read More
Since we already had an “alternative” Powderchase on the last trip, everybody was praying for more snow to come until this Powderchase.

Already the third time we’ll be going to this North-pointing ski area on the ’backside’ of Lech.
Four days before ‘our’ weekend the first big snow storm of the year is brewing. Not only in the Northeast, but also from the West there should be interesting amounts of snow. But on top there will also be lots of wind. And the forecasted avalanche situation is pretty sketchy. Where to go?

To say some Powderchasers were a little surprised would have been an understatement. To be honest, so were we… Wednesday early – the day on which we… Read More
