S K I T I N E R A R I E S: Austria’s Paradise

It will take a while for us to get there, if ever, a white wish for a complete ski trip:

The Villgraten Valley in the east of Austria’s Tyrol region is a paradise for skiers. The area is unspoiled and the village of Innervillgraten decided early on to adopt sustainable tourism. But there are no ski lifts,so skiers have to climb up the mountains themselves. They’re rewarded with a ride down uncrowded slopes with powder snow and breathtaking views.

S K I T I N E R A R I E S: LET IT SNOW!

BIG SNOW VIDEO
THE NAME’S NINO, EL NINO!

El Nino has come to Heavenly and Lake Tahoe with guns blazing! We’ve received over TWO FEET of new snow over the past 24 hours and it’s still DUMPING (1:30pm UPDATE: We’re now up over 30 inches of new snow – it’s crazy!)!

POWDER ANYONE?

Snow at last! The heavens opened up overnight and dumped two feet of fresh powder on the mountain. Low temperatures and snowfall will continue throughout the day so wear your goggles and warmest layers. This snow is light and dry so the tree line will be deceptively attractive. For your safety, please stick to groomed runs only. It’s going to be a beautiful to day ski and ride! Be ready when lifts open at 9 AM to carve some fresh snow tracks.
