Default Waiting snowtime

Slow snowtime this year but my mountains are always wonderful

ps: Take a look to the mountain saddle under the airplane, looks like a specular canopy

Default Beautiful Dolomites

Thanks for this gorgeous photo Luke. Tell me you planned that specular canopy! Is the -8 just as much fun now after many hours? Please keep the excellent photos and videos coming.

mmmmm, no we didn't plan the specular canopy ... TBO only my daughter Giorgia saw that coincidence

... after 50 hours I don't stop to call my 8 : 'Irresistible Euphoria' !!!

Snow is down to 700 metres my side of the Alps Luca. It is also very windy today. I doubt if anyone is flying in the mountains today.
