Italy had their best year in over 20 years last year. Huge dumps, vicious avalanches, and all the pros in the world made Italy a madhouse last year. At times there was literally too much snow out there.
“It was waist deep snow. It snowed too much. Usually by the time we got up there it was already dense and a bit cooked.” – Seth Morrison told SnowBrains about Italy 2014 this past November
Italy was featured in nearly every ski movie that came out this year. And for good reason. Italy went off last year.
Salomon Freeski TV found a very cool angle on their Dolomite trip last year: War. World War 1 had a big impact on the Dolomites with forces hollowing out the mountains to fight each other in the high country. Salomon tells us more:
“The Salomon Freeski TV crew heads to their lodge high in the Italian Dolomites. There they discover that the mountain they are skiing on used to be the the front lines in World War I.” – Salomon Freeski TV
