A bit of music tonight.
Let’s get started with Miike Snow
and yes it will not help to keep those curtains close. Nooooose…
- Skiing: New snow in Utah
- Europe: Skiing season starts with record snow
- Fun: Selling Snow from Colorado
- Weekend Activity: Look there’s snow
As you can see from this great Telemark extreme skiing video by J.T. Robinson it has started to snow over in Utah.
Great filming, great sound, great snow, we are sooooo jealous.
After a few seasons with very little snow this skiing season in Europe is starting with new records of snow heights.
The last days of massive snow falls throughout Europe – it was even snowing on some Spanish islands normally considered by many as a warm winter refuge – have brought amounts of snow to Austrian, German, Swiss and French resorts some of them have not seen for the whole season the last years and never been seen in November before.
While the US and Canada the last years where lucky with record snow heights, in Europe many resorts experienced “droughts” to the extend that in Switzerland the last two winters fire warnings had to be issues to prevent forest fires.
Lets hope this year will be different and it looks like it might be.
And people are desperate to go…
A bunch of jokesters have taken up the idea of the “Unassembled Snowman For Sale” and are selling “Colorado Blizzard” snow on Ebay. Offers range from organic, genuine snow from Blizzards, snow balls to own a part of the Blizzards. We have counted more then 50 sellers some with multiple offers currently online…
Heavy snowfalls across Europe the last days and snow cover building up in many areas reminded us that its only a few more days before the lifts start running again. Here are two videos to warm you up for the new snow season soon to start in Europe, the U.S. and Canada.
The first one’s on a carnage at Fernie when about 150 people diving into Currie bowl at rope drop.
The second video is a great animation on the “dangers of snow” – about a bloodthirsty snow man hunting skiers and boarders.
