    Hey P - assuming you got some good shots today (Wed 4th). I don't know where you went, but man, where I was... it was magnificent.

    overall rating today was 8 out of 10 with one run and many turns 9 out of 10. It was absolutely amazing. chest deep at time. Only the bushes are a bit of an issue. Tomorrow will be sick too

    Another 30cm of low density and slightly better light would have made a 10/10 for me in terms of snow. I rate it much lower in other terms though. But then I like girls for their personalities as well, not just their

    If you are having problems with scrub, you need to "look elsewhere". Aka, get away from the Happo zone is my guess. That place just doesn't have mature stands of beech.

    damian I thought you preferred your 15-20cm falls?

    I do. They allow me to do stuff that rates higher in other (more important to me) terms other than snow quality alone. It is all written in my post above. [​IMG]

    And besides, this was only a 36cm at 3pm fall in the valley anyhow.

    It is the 70cm in 12 hours or so at valley bottom that I don't care for.

    Paedde knows where to go where the sticky bushes aren't so bad. It's just the runs we really love are not ready yet. Or so I hear....

    Ridiculously epic. Yet this is becoming standard fro you Paedde so I think I am sensitized now.

    You are too modest, you're one of the very few folk around here who can take good on snow pics.
    That must have felt as good as it looks mark. I gather the wrist is completely healed, but beware the feared Skiers Thumb, to which those of the true sliding faith are mostly immune, especially if they don mittens.

    Brilliant. Love it.

    Best photographer in skigies needs to be divide into snow and non snow categories. Too much camera talent around here to reduce it just to three.

    We had a chat to paedde about that - he works about the same amount of hours as an Australian professional, but due to Swiss laws he is credited for the overtime and can ski for 3 months a year. We do it for free.
