Skiing ... in San Marino

countries_skied++;

San Marino!

It is the 58th country.

Although I can't say there was snow... but rocks on the path from the top of Monte Titano will do. I started from Cesta, the castle at the highest point on Monte Titano at 756 meters, and the rock-floored path down provides a surprisingly good sliding for my plastic "mini skis" by Orthex, the proud sponsor of my blog.

I had never been to San Marino before, and it was an amazing experience also in other ways. The festival to celebrate the victory over fascists was held on the weekend that we visited. There were shows, people dressed in historical clothing, etc. And just the drive up to this tiny nation's mountain peak was a thrill. And the walks on the mountain between the castles were wonderful, night and day. Much recommended.

Aymar Navarro’s South Lines is Back, and its GOOD

Each summer, those of us twiddling our thumbs waiting for snow in the northern hemisphere are treated to a visual feast courtesy of Aymar Navarro absolutely slaying big mountain lines in South America. This summer, nothing has changed. Navarro and photographer Txema Trull are back at it, chasing snow around the Andes and hunting the skinniest couloirs they can find. Thanks to some recent heavy snow and good conditions, they dropped Episode 1 of this year’s edition of South Lines. The couloirs
