Yesterday it was snowing hard all day with almost no wind. The snow just kept piling up. This morning the result was 40cms of perfect powder. Then more luck, skies started to clear completely at around 9 a.m. – what timing!
The snow was just perfect and well bonded at most places. Some spots where the strong wind gusts had blown off all the snow last week you could still hit the odd rock. But most places it was just deep and fun with lots of faceshots.
Top to bottom runs with well over 1000m vertical are finally full on! So we hiked up to the Maroikopf in Stuben am Arlberg. Great views and deep, blower powder all the way to the Village of Langen.
Things are starting to fill in nicely and it is supposed to stay cold. The snowpack is pretty stable as well, this should open up possibilities for some nice touring in the next few days.
