I just got these pictures from Stefan! Looks like there is STILL just a little snow there. His boys are enjoying a nice lesiurely ski in the Alps. Now I know why he wanted me to purchase all the avalanche gear he needed prior to our arrival. He is planning on taking us hiking in the mountains……HIKING?!?!?!?? Perhaps, I need to get a personal GPS for this trip so they can find me under 30 feet of snow after the last avalanche comes tumbling down!
