Kaunertal is west from the insbruck!
And that bovec is looking like i have to go to check it out in the christmastime...
The floggings will continue until morale improves.

well actually that stations is nuts.(they all seem to be) as it would be -150cm. so if it snows 1,5m they'll have a zero baseIt's a war of the mind and we're armed to the teeth.

and "that bovec thing" is gonna get dumped upon again on saturday
and with a bigger MAYBE again on tuesday. I want to go there next week (hey only 950km ) But they do not seem to open anytime soon and there are no infos on their site.....the only infos i found: "sometime in december. " Haha THANX i wouldn't have guessed....It's a war of the mind and we're armed to the teeth.

As I mentioned before I'll be home in Graz from January 6 onwards. Let me know if you want to hook up for a trip to Krippenstein or Bovec.Ein Berg ohne Absturzgefahr ist nur noch Attrappe. (Reinhold Messner)

If I had to make a choice now, I'd hit Obertauern or Loser. Not sure when Krippenstein opens, Tauplitz opens on December 3. Plenty of info available at Bergfex.Ein Berg ohne Absturzgefahr ist nur noch Attrappe. (Reinhold Messner)

does anyone really read my posts here especially the ones about the station ?
but yes it is still the schneeloch it used to be....
and franz: sure. i'll be coming down some days for sure.(and i hope i'll get a new student job soon for if not it won't be many )
if im not around look here: www.freeskiforum.de , most of them hang out in the german/austrain alps.

I follow closely the events in Western CH (live in Geneve).
Therefore, I am not very interested in Eastern CH and the Austrian Panhandle.
Keep posting.when not on the snow what else do i do...

and i'll keep posting until ill go skiing myself (and afterwards ill start posting again... you cannot stop ME, noone can ahahahhahahhahahhahahh )
edit: btw. i phoned bovec(yeah i know, im a desperate fool ) and a likely opening date would be the 10th. so if i ski thursday and friday somewhere in austria, i could go down later that weekend ....hmmm.

Looks like zermatt/cevinia are going to get dumped on this weekend. snow forecast is saying 27+ cms on friday night.
I'm driving to the alps tonight for a long weekend, I can't decide whether to go to austria or switzerland .....
My only concern about switzerland is gettiing there and getting whiteout avie danger conditions ......Semper in Pulveris .... Only the depth varies
12-01-2005, 03:20 AM #438
i wouldn't go anywhere high and glaciated, especially not on the south side or in the central alps. the "föhn" will be really strong and it will dump so stormy whiteout is nearly guaranteed o the south side and "just" storm on the north side.
basically that is why im staying here(well im visiting my gf in bavaria, but no skiing for us because of the weather)
if you really want to, id probably choose an austrian resort with a decent base which doesn't go to high but won't get rained upon once the föhn breaks down.
because snow levels will be around 1200m i'd guess.It's a war of the mind and we're armed to the teeth.

This time next week I'm gonna be skiing! Woo hoo. Hoping the megadump arrives in Alpe d'Huez and that the howling wind and blizzards this opening weekend keep the crowds away. That would rule. Then we rock up midweek and ski a bit of fresh. That's the script anyway. Seeing as I'm running the show, it will probably dissolve into an umentionable shambles and none of this will come to pass.
12-01-2005, 03:26 AM #440
hmmm ... i was thinking that.
I'm debating around innsbruck. Kaunertal but thats really high, Stbai ... too high. Axams maybe but i can't get can't sense out of the website to get a proper base check.
Anything east of here is a mystery to me as i have only been to austria once before ..... in 1982 ...... when i was 9 ..... to learn to ski.Semper in Pulveris .... Only the depth varies

And, Haute Valais should get some hammering!!!when not on the snow what else do i do...

altaussee /tauplitzalm (styria... hehe another word laerned from the board) would be my bet. decent base. trees and some terrain higher up if the north side gets it's share. also bad gastein /obertauern (salzburger land) has some base and higher terrain.
@ roo / lost you can always jinx the mystery

They have a limited number of runs open but the base is about 55cm top / 25 cm bottom at the mo with 10-15 arriving on friday night.
As i'm going to arrive at 8-9am friday wherever i go, it looks Ok to get one day of sun in and then get some fresh tracks saturday in the trees as the base there is grass as opposed to jagged ski detroying stuff you find elsewhere.
Does anyone know if chains are de riguer for Kitz ?
I just checked my chains from last year and they're the wrong size for my new car. Bit late to track some down for less that £100. Doh!Semper in Pulveris .... Only the depth varies
12-01-2005, 03:46 AM #445
What sort of car do you have?
12-01-2005, 03:49 AM #446
French dads car .... Renault laguna diesel, Front wheel drive. So chains would be a good idea if i can get them.... but this may be difficult at 5 hours notice .... in bristolSemper in Pulveris .... Only the depth varies

Weather keeps changing day by day. I'm heading to Innbruck on Saturday, will ski Sunday. I'm watching the weather every day, and I just can't wait to get down there.
I figure I'll just ask the guys at the rental shop which mountain in the area they'd be skiing at if they didn't have to work"Who's the chump doing 140kph in the fast lane!!?" - German autobahns kick ass!

Reports! Reports! Anyone skiing this weekend will earn muchos respecto points for giving first hand reports of their Alpen experience.
I'm a tad excited.
Damn roo and his infectious energy.
