Friday too! :D
But temperatures are too high. On Sunday it will rain up to 2400 m! 8O :twisted:

This is not normal at the end of January in this area of the Alps. Statistics are confirming the global warming, and winters in the future will be less good. :?

Hi Guys

Today in the deep south of the Alpes we have 10 degrees at 2000M.

For tomorrow the weather forecast says that we may have between 12 and 16 degrees... at 2000 meters.

The snow is like in April...

Usually we should have 20 degrees less...

Winter is not coming...

Yep, it is raining in village now, hope it still comes down as snow on slopes, as it did in morning.

So once again great selection for timing for Swoard session :clap2:

We had a strange session off-piste today, Pokkis, Paula, Mallorie and I. Even at La Corne (2900 m), the snow was wet. It has rained at very high altitude. The snow was white in some areas... and grey in others... depending on the concentration of water. 8O
I had never seen this here at the beginning of February. :? Climate has become weird.

Que ce soit en frontside ou backside, pas facile de faire deux mouvements en un, à savoir une flexion et une rotation en mème temps, telle une vrille... !! :(
