Saint Bernard Hospice 3/7/2013 A Day with the Ladies

With the weather and the Foehn winds hanging around we decided to get some history. So Stina called Kate and Mary Louise and we hatched a plan to go check out where the puppies come from. It’s 2000′ of vertical gain and 3 miles one way. With a history dating back to 1000AD the Hospice […]

Lagginjoch 3499m Hero Snow 3/1/2013

We set out early for Saas Grund with some options. The Hohsaas Lift offers high access to the peaks east of Saas Grund. Weissmies and Fletchorn offer good options for skiing but we weren’t sure how the snow over in this zone was. It’s about an hour and a half from Verbier. On arrival the […]

Verbier, Switzerland 4/10/2012 What a Fun Place

Well I’ve been in Switzerland now for 3 days. The first day was storming like crazy when I woke up and I had been up for 36 hours getting here so I went back to bed. This was a good idea I think. So much of Verbier is above treeline and never having skied the […]
