Yesterday I started my skitouring season directly after a Wonderfull city trip in the Wonderfull city of Roma. The joy of the Italian gastronomy and the happiness to get warmer temperature are strongly opposite to the Splügeln Pass climat. To begin this new season I had the objective to skin up until Piz Tambo and ski down the north face.
The ski resort still close The uphill is something 1900hm high and some kilometers. The landscape is awesome up there and I was back in Italy just few hours after Roma. I made almost all the way up the track and at the end a friendly group broke the last meters.
I was bit worry about snow stability, a huge wind slab went away and I was wondering how the upper part would be stable. The first few turns made me confident and I decided to drop in. The snow was bit wind blow and powder pack, but super nice to ski, the last hundred meters were powder cinema. From the bottom, skin on and back to the resort to dont risk any rocks contact. That was a day, a cool way to start the winter!
