    Half way trough my 12 hr journey to the east, just realised I was making the same trip last year, almost to the day, for an eastern storm. Stay safe and have fun all, and thanks for the updates subtle. Stoke is high

    you may have spoken to buster, but I'll answer:

    I will. I will....im still convincing the Crew. But I got at least one Team mate.

    Still not sure whether 6 hours and get a room by car or 8h by rv....(or 12h on the way back if it actually snows down to the Autobahn like in 18/19) 🤯


    Where are you headed Banzai?

    Bad Gastein or Malnitz by train, hotel Echo for the now.

    My faith in Graubunden is undeterred; I'm still planning on being there for EuroBBi2023, dammit.

    Snow for the Euros.

    Anyone fly Delta and know how flexible they are on the linear inches maximum for a ski bag? Their stated max linear inches (height+circumference) is 115”, and my bag is 117”, but bigger at the bottom and smaller at the top. Measured in the middle of the height it’s only 110”

    Headed to Chamonix next week.

    I've gone with a bag that holds 200 cm skis.

    They tend to be more circumspect about weight, so don't draw attention to that.

    Cham is overrated. ;-)

    Sometimes it depends on the gate agent. They tend to be more focused on the weight of the bag than the length.

    I might check in tomorrow - 15cm forecasted for Klosters. Monday might turn out good with more snow and good weather... anybody up for some skiing there on monday?

    Everybody else: have fun in the east!

    I am actually in Davos for the weekend and next week working unless there's a day that can't be missed (maybe Monday). Great snow quality today with marginal visibility and cautious skiing since I'm a tourist and have no idea where the sharks are...

    What's the word on conditions in and around Chamonix? I was invited to join a trip the first week of April.

    Not so great season so far?

    I've had pretty terrible conditions the past 3 international ski trips I've been on. Thinking I'll probably not go unless things in Chamonix are good.

    Edit to add- if you were wanting to ski in Europe the first week of April, where is your current bet for best conditions?

    Late March / early April is prime time for Lofoten Islands (Norway). Right now it is too far to tell how it will shape up by then, but i've gone there twice around those dates and have scored great snow and average to great weather.

    I had fun too.

    First real skibday 22 /23.... that is pretty sad. The two touring days were all right, but this is the first day that felt like skiing.

    I like the infamous “pole” shot. How far east did you go?

    Zauchensee. Like my new 10.000 friends. Was tracked by 11


    And did you see my ski in the powder spray explosion shot? I took the little drop blind because I was in the face shot.
    pic 4 is me bouncing back out from the Landing.
