Yeah boys...You all would have been stoked to get up on top of them thar Austrian peaks to have a gander. There's actually a pretty good hut system in the alps....In fact we came upon one that a farmer just leaves an alpine hut open. It had a sweet big ol' cheese cauldron in there.
Flo.... it was definitely a down snow year for the Zillertal valley. Some other valleys got crushed with snow...just the way it goes in the alps. Never the less...it was good to be out there, and see what Zillertal has to offer. Next time I go back..I'm getting a crew together to get back into some hard to reach spots. I'll also make sure to head over late Feb/Early March when most of the winter storms have come through, and you have a better shot at clear days to hit N Facing goods
Now...Leaving Thurs to hook up with Ale and Spicolli...pretty outstanding way to finish my split season...Then it's time to dust off the MX....braaaaaaaaaap!
