Times change, just as each season gives way to the next. For passionate skiers around the globe, however, the time of year can never undermine the enthusiasm for their next great day on snow. Regardless of weather, conditions, or the effort required to get there, “a bad day of skiing still beats a good day at work.”

Obviously we're not talking about the dump of the season here (understatement) and we're still in the middle of summer, but just some fresh snow on the webcam makes the heart, or at least my heart beat faster again.
Especially around the Monte Rosa it was white. At least for a while. And there is more snow expected for the highest glaciers on Wednesday, but after that summer will return again. But hey, let's enjoy these images from Sunday August the 16th. Winter is coming!

It's safe to say it is not an easy summer for the average powderfreak living in the Northern Hemisphere now that snowrecords are being broken in the South. New Zealand has had one of the best season starts in years and some resorts in Argentina got treated with the biggest dump they've head in years: over one meter of snowfall in less than 24 hours.

In the category 'return to sender', there's a recall on backpacks with the Jetforce technology. This relatively new airbag does not work with cylinders which are under high pressure (like ABS and Mammut), but with a battery which drives a fan. Read more about the Jetforce airbag here. Anyway, if you have one in yourself now it's time to send it back.

Everyone has already seen the video of the white rabbit in the avalanche. Not yet? Well, you're one of the few, but if you missed it, it is about a rabbit who tries (and pretty successful actually) not to be buried by the avalanche chasing DCP. Of course it looks hilarious, but hey, riding of bounds is full of risks and the rabbit makes plenty of (basic) mistakes.

May was pretty extraordinary with lots of snowfall in the Alps and Scandinavia. We saw pictures with snow deep into the valleys on a regular basis. The images shot in Norway this week however... Wow... They make me forget about summer. Winter is back!
Deep snowed in lift in Fonna

It's late April, summer is well on its way and it felt like Spring in the Alps the last couple of days. A lot of resorts already closed their lifts for the season. But there's more snow on its way. Wax up... there's snow coming for the higher alpine. There aren't that much lifts open anymore, but some resorts still have their lifts running.
