You cannot believe the lack of snow in the French and Swiss Alps this year, it is truly miserable - I think it snowed semi seriously maybe twice so far.

I envy you!

i've been watching the world cup ski events all season..
it's shocking to see entire ski areas barren of snow, except the manmade stuff these professional skiers are flying down....

it's basically a hockey rink, turned up at a 45 degree pitch.

ugh.




some video someone uploaded from the morning after the storm.....

One of the artists here is up at Brighton today... for some reason he doesn't like Alta.:Confused:

could be that he's a boarder.....

they only do skiing at alta............... it, and Deer Valley, are the last holdouts.

i dig brighton, i've had some great deep powder days there too.


but it's pretty over-run by kids.
