>>663628 >the week previous eh. Damn straight. Zillertal in Austria, dec26 throu jan5. First week was literally 10-15°C day heighs. Srsly wtf. Pic related.
Kinda fun though once you got used to the artificial snow because it was really empty. January got really traffic-jam-y on some tracks.
You know I dont mind the beginners and newbs going slow, because yes, speed is scary. But then I see folks with near perfect technique deliberatly going slow on an almost flat stretch of the track with no reason not to just "put the pedal to the metal" and then literally and seemingly on purpose blocking the whole width... I mean srsly if you're good enough to either be fast enough or not stand in the way of everyone else, why would you not do that??
Also >old people ski like they have no idea how to drive a car by this I mean >this is where the track splits, you can go left or right. >you need to go right >LETS STAY ON THE LEFT FOR AS LONG AS POSSIBLE, THEN CUT EVERYONE OFF AS YOU SWING OVER TO THE RIGHT yea I mad sometimes
Nothing quite so depressing as the sight of a ski resort desperately fucked for snow eh, like your pic related. Those white lines over bare earth. Pic is a crop from a webcam I was watching the week leading up to my trip... Sad as fuck, desperation in a jpg.
>>663562 It wasn't too bad. I don't mind the heavier wet snow and it kept the red and black pistes nice and quiet. On the drive up the road the the resort there were runs that I had skied last year that were just grass though.
>>664875 Depends on snow conditions but I'd say that usually XC skis are as good or better, and also more fun.
If you're going to be breaking trail in deepish snow, especially in the woods, look for backcountry touring XC skis. They're shorter and wider for float and maneuverability than skis for groomed trails, and mine have a metal edge and sidecut for easier turns going down hills.
