Ski day – possibly poorly choosen day for ski day…

photoWe have been having a shit tastic winter. I know everyone is getting blasted in North America, and in the UK, but we have flowers blossoming and wind warnings every other week because of the massive ass Foehn winds. Foehn wind basically translates as hair dryer, and its a hot super dry, super strong wind that blasts over the Alps in certain conditions. We went skiing anyway, but they ended up shutting down half of the lifts because the wind was too strong, this was a shot of the wind blowing snow off an adjacent mountain from down in the valley in the morning, it only got stronger over the day. But, clocked some hours on skis anyway.


About adventuresunplugged

The world is a really cool place. I moved to Zurich almost three years ago to start my PhD, and have really enjoyed the different opportunites living close to the Swiss alps offered. This blog is about some of my adventures, climbing, mountaineering, rock climbing, traveling... life in general! Wow, haven't updated this bad boy in some time! While the above is still true I have gone on to finish the PhD, so that is Dr Unplugged to you. I also have landed a job in Switzerland and will be shortly moving to Geneva. Clearly I have some adventures ahead left to explore with you guys along for company!
