BAM! Norbert does its thing. It is ON in the south and west of the Piedmont. Not much later, the eastern parts of Lombardy and the Southern Alps East are next to get some more snow and PowderAlert #11 will follow right after with snow for the northern Alps. Will it get any better than this? If you want to ride bottomless powder, now is the time to get in your car. No holiday crowds, relatively quiet and great tree runs. If you bother about the higher alpine right now, than you make it too difficult for yourself. This is the time of pillows, bouncing between trees and spotting the corridors. Above the tree line... well, that's a different story. The snow is unstable, the problems in the snow cover will be still there for a while to say at least and might even get worse because of the wind. It's up to you, but I choose the runs between the trees the coming days. You know what they say... the best freerider is an old freerider.It's ON in the south
Storm Norbert is getting stronger and will drop its snow in the southern Alps. Especially in the southern Piedmont it's going to be deep. The go-to destinations are probably known and I mentioned them before, but hey, let's make sure you'll end up in the right place. In resorts such as Limone Piemonte, l'Argentera and Crissolo it's going to be deep. The same applies to the resorts in the western Piedmont and the eastern part of the Queyras. Prali, Bardonnechia, Via Lattea etc. Be sure you're out there on Thursday for the better larch forests. Your patience will be rewarded. But mind you ... the more north you go, the less snow you'll find. Go south! That's the answer.
A PowderAlert is ON from Thursday in:
Na donderdag breidt de neerslag zicht uit richting de Dolomieten, de ooststau van de Lombardia en Karinthië. Vanaf vrijdag is het daarmee ook aan in de:
After Thursday the precipitation extends towards the Dolomites, the eastern stau regions of Lombardia and Carinthia. Starting on Friday it's ON in the:
It's even on in the Apennines. What's holding you back? Paste, powder, exotic. These are the months that you can escape the usual suspects and explore resorts that 99% of the riders have never heard of. What about Cimone, Corno alle Scale (Emilia-Romagna) and Abetone (Tuscany). Thanks to @VikingAlosa. It was on in the not that well-known Schwarzwald last week (check out the article tomorrow on wePowder), but now it's on in the exotic Apennines.
What are you waiting for? Start your engines and GO!
