pow skiing – with a dark touch
The New Year is here with great snow, especially in Italy. Courmayeur has been great the last week and I have been skiing loads of good snow with Felix, Max, Morgan and Stina. Heads up for a bad layer in the snowpack 1-0,5 meter down on northern aspects. We turned around after a small slide in the trees, showing us a really dangerous layer in the snow pack. We backed of and got a long warm hike back up to where we started. Sadly, other people where not as lucky as us and at least two people died later on that day. If powder skiing is heaven, avalanches are definitely hell.
