Powder skiing in Cervinia

Yesterday morning the view from the window was promising: fresh snow all around! We were happy and so were the cinciallegre (Parus Major) having their breakfast!

The day after (tuesday 26 February) has been a gorgeous day: cold, sunny, without wind and with powder. Finally a good day for Corrado to switch his skis and get my Dynastar Cham 97! We got the Plateau Rosa Cableway quite early and had the satisfaction of first tracks on Teodul couloir. On the second run my husband took this picture of me:

We then got the cableway again to ski down to Furgsattel Chairlift. The offpiste along the moraines was simply terrific: a few tracks but none around. We did it a few times waiting for lunch time: 1pm is the perfect time to get the Klein Matterhorn cableway without waiting in queue… So we skied down the offpiste on the glacier with perfect snow. Only three tracks before:

Caution: crevasses!

When back at Plateau Rosa the Ventina piste seemed OK but the spazzatura offpiste was in decent condition so we did it. It was fine but quite tracked… At this point a strudel at Cime Bianche Laghi was really deserved!  A last run to ski down to the car in Cervinia among people and ski classes was the most dangerous part of the day!
