On Saturday, we awoke to sunny skies in Alagna, Italy.

We rode lifts to the top.

We skinned for about an hour.

We dropped into a dreamland.

We found cold, powdery snow on northern aspects.

We found creamy corn on all other aspects.

This 6,000-vertical-foot run had a bit of everything.

The tight chute we skied on the exit was long and slushy and tight and fun.

Cruising out the exit, we saw the cutest summer villages that were buried in snow.

At least 6-feet of snow on every roof.

The snow got thinner and thinner until we were walking on a summer trail back to town.

The trail had wildflowers, grass, and cobblestones.

This place is a dream I hope I never wake up from.

Another terrific 6,000-vertical-foot adventure with the Alagna Rat Pack.

Special thanks to Alagna, Monterosa, and the Alagna Rat Pack.

Big thanks as well to Intuition Liners for making this trip happen.
