Snow report of the 2015 ski season


Comments:

Hi Everybody,

Last week was another great ski-touring week, skiing long alpine lines and super powder. All groups got to enjoy the grand hut to hut skiing. Enjoying the beautiful Durrand Glacier scenery and a big part of the endless and impressive alpine terrain.

The weather was mixed. We had several days of blue sky and sun, then we also got some wind and towards the end of the week snow storms. This gave all guests a perfect mix of skiing in the alpine and in the higher areas of the trees.

Amongst the best runs of the week: Ruth Glacier, Innominata Ridge, Graham Glacier, Zwilling's Glacier, Centrale Peak direct into Centrale Glacier East, Centrale Glacier South, Durrand Glacier, Forbidden Glacier, North Face Glacier, Allalin Glacier direct into the Durrand Bowl, Morning Glory, Boogie Basin to Missing Jack etc.

It definitely was a fun week with inspiring ski-guests and friends.

Keep on skiing, lots of untouched powder at Durrand, and it keeps coming

Have fun in the powder.
