First Snow Report for the ski season 2013 / 14
Date: December 6th, 2013
Together with Nicoline and Florina I flew today to the Durrand Glacier Chalet to check on the water system and doing snow observations. It was incredible to be up there, a great snowpack and blue sky. We climbed up the Ledges to Mirror Lake and further to the top of Goat Peak. Of-course standing up there and looking down the Goat Face, there was only one single option for the ski descent … down the always incredible Goat Face. Laying our tracks in the powder snow, aiming for the perfect fall-line and having endless fun.

| Silvretta - Toedi|
Austria and Switzerland
The Silvretta is as famous as the Haute Route, the only difference it has much more snow. Yes, this is the largest snow-belt in the entire Alps. The Toedi makes a grand finish to this great program. We skied the Toedi in May 2013 as a combined program with the Berner Oberland. Yes, lots of powder and amazing touring. Early May is a perfect time for this grand program.

Starting at the Monchsjoch Hut elevation 3657 meter (30 minutes from the world-famous Jungfraujoch and ending in the charming Loetschental. Trust me, mid May is not too late for this truly most amazing high alpine hut to hut skiing program in the center of the Swiss Alps, if anything this is a perfect time for the Berner Oberland. Last year we got hammered with powder snow.
