Season’s on!

And so it happened…

After long waiting and lack of snow I kicked the season off on Hintertux.

The drought in Europe is clearly visible also in the Alps. While North America is getting a ridiculous amount of snow, in Europe there was hardly any snowfall…

I thought that after what I saw on August 26th…

…it would get only better and better, but the the weather forecast started to look like that:

I decided to go anyway. The sad thing was, the amount of snow in mid October was thinner than in August 2016 :/

October 15th 2018:

August 3rd 2016:

But with the skis sharpened, one could still enjoy skiing, at least until early afternoon, before the wind and all skiers wiped the snow out and turned the slopes into ice rink…

Well, I’m going there again on November 1stΒ  and hope that THAT forecast will come true πŸ™‚

And here are few pics. It may be hardly any snow, it may be icy, but it’s still skiing πŸ™‚
