Wildstrubel

Fresh 50 cm of snow and perfect sunshine in April does change the program... North facing slopes for perfect powder or south sides for perfect mush...




Being based at the Lammerenhutte gave us the flexibility to choose the best angle of slopes, well except for the Roter Totz.






Skiing off-piste is about skiing all kinds of snow including perfect "poudre"! Right Jo?

Ski off-piste does imply the use of ski touring equipment. Right Sue?

First ski tour!



This is it Penny, ski touring!
I chose this itinerary to emerged you into the art of kick turns.
The mixed climbing wasn't part of the initiation...


On a perfect day in a perfect world, the Crochues Bérard is a straightforward tour.
Now, we experienced it a touch more adventurous as Penny's hired boots were 2 sizes too big. A detail she realized when skiing down in a total whiteout. I ended up giving her my own inners to try an pad out the gap.

Garrath confessed he was disappointed not to see the table cloth coming out of my pack...

Cycling to work




The babyseat is very useful for carrying extra equipment!
I should design a ski rack to make it easier.
