It was a day of new snow yesterday. The skiers in our group were excited, since proper snow is seriously lacking on the pistes this week. Temperatures have been ridiculously high earlier this week, resulting in bees leaving the hive and Daughter and me playing in the snow without coats and snow pants.

Despite the significant amount of new snow yesterday, it wasn’t enough to cover the slopes on the sunny side of the mountains. Compare these two images, the first taken on Tuesday, the other taken today (Thursday).

Nevertheless, skiing conditions are perfect today. Even Daughter dared to “ski” after four days of observing other kids. Together with a friend she went downhill three times. Victory!
