    Out of time. peds? No, the season never ends in Tyrol (lifts are running 365 days a year in Hintertux).
    Why not try this gear, peds?

    Ok, to avoid further missunderstanding let me show you
    the whole panorama of this freeride area, Kitzsteinhorn/Salzburg.
    Here you find dozens couloirs, all ending at altitude of about 2,000 meters.


    If we only had a heli to ride down all of them!

    As I say, looks fun!

    But the timescale I'm referring to is, quite selfishly, my own, as I'm having surgery in six weeks and I won't be skiing much for a while after that. So post me some Rax and I'd love to throw them down some forgotten couloir... we have lifts running 365 days a year too!

    Looking forward to a visit in July. A week in and around Styria for my exchange daughters wedding and a week somewhere in the Alps climbing, no idea where just yet.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    Oh, shit! I wish I'd checked back and seen this. Sorry Tom, looks like I've missed the boat.

    Next year!

    It's July, are you going to try out the Rax Hutash? Take lots of pictures. Really curious to get your first hand impression of the Rax.
