    the Greater Andermatt Metroplex.
    The cobblestone streetwork is genuinely an artistic masterpiece.

    These 3 kooks met Buster and I at the end of the day surveying their domain from the train station bench overlooking the town of Rueras.
    the middle guy thought I asked him to take a picture of us, but when I clarified that I wanted to take their picture, they burst out laughing and he told me the gent on the right was the President of the town.
    He laughed the hardest.

    Then we skied corn for 40 yards to the back door of the lodge.

    Love reading your little TR Djongo, this little corner of the internet sure is a special place. I'm so glad you got to go and experience this trip! I need to get my ass over there one of these days.

    Super happy everyone seems to be making the most of the trip. Hopefully schedules line up next year so I can join after (if?) mags run through Klosters again.

    No truer words were spoken to me today.

    I've been skiing with mags, most of whom I'd not met before, and seeing how it ultimately doesn't matter much how well you turn, but how much you want to.

    Banging around in such a phenomenal environment must bring out the best in us as the vibe amongst the crew has been topnotch.
    And the conditions have been less than soft mostly, yet nary a soul has complained.

    Even on the sketchball rattle steeps of the guided groups, hairy traverses or milk bottle braille laps on pretty damn steep groomers.
    At speed, you did not want to fall cuz your slide could involve blood promptly off the side.

    Mags are teaming up to ski like minded laps and getting to know new turners and what they're all about.
    So many interesting people and the stories are off the hook. The laughter factor has been turned up to 11 and although we don't all do things alike, everyone seems to be easy going and adapting as it plays out.
    The level of consideration for others is admirable to say the least...

    I got a sweet room with a balcony. It overlooks the mini livestock pen from the neighbor, One day it's 20 mini goats, the next it's 30 sheep.
    The big Swiss dairy cows are just up around the bend. They are beautiful.

    I rented a pair of Volkl M6 demos in a 191 and am absolutely loving them. And I forgot the value in having some edge. They feel divine and I can rock them right outta the gates like a banshee. Let's roll...
    We skied a bunch of laps on the Gemsstock tram yesterday and ended up skiing 22 miles in about 6 hours. The day before could have been double that skiing from rueras to andermatt, multi tram laps then back to town and the lodge.

    The Mountain Lodge.
    Comfortable, Clean, Cool and run by a genuine TGR mag, Vendul, who can deliver the goods. The food is outstanding, the prices are sooooooo reasonable for all that he and his wife provide. And the vibe they create, while trying to run a successful business, is absolutely Idyllic to this crusty old ski bum.
    It's fucking AWESOME.
    And it all is because of Vendul and his special Lady friend.
    I envy his position and situation, what a life adventure, running a business in the Swiss Alps.
    Thank You my new Friend. I only hope that some day I can attempt to provide you two with such a bucket list moment...

    To everyone who pitched in on this for me and the other brothers, I don't even know how to explain what a moving trip this has been for me.
    In many ways, I've kinda been around the block. Yet, here I am, at 56, a babe in the woods.
    With your donations you've transported me to a higher level of Nirvana than I was aware of. Seriously.
    I consider myself one of the luckiest mags on here for my skiing life. Now, I question whether or not I've just been reborn.



    Hang on, I got something in my eye...


    And yeah, they're pretty red.

    Thank you to everyone. Please let me know if I can ever do anything for you. I am in your debt. And I'm a Man who pays.
    Good to meet you on fondue night, I wish I could’ve stuck around and made turns with the group.

    Fucking making me teary eyed reading that lil reflection Djongo. My first experience there was -- as you put it -- " I don't even know how to explain what a moving trip this has been for me." The place, the mag camaraderie (Buster having a big part to orchestrating that), and fucking platonic-ideal-of-hosts Vendul and Serena.

    You're a heck of a writer dude. I hope you know that.

    According to locals, it’s a low snow year. I heard 60% of average thrown out a few times.

    Glad to see the photos coming!
