While i'm on the snow tangent... what a winter (after doing the last two seasons it was'nt my best decision not to have done this one) it was an epic. From late October onwards the reports from europe and the world over, came in thick and fast.... record sub zero temps, record dumps, lift stations openning weeks early and the lucky few getting upto there necks in the white stuff. After some fun riding down in Seirra Nevada over christmas i was'nt content. The answer? jump in the truck and head for the alps.
