But! every now and then it is time to expand horizons, so when the opportunity to work with ISPO in Munich came up earlier this winter, I extended the trip for a few weeks to wander off from Munich to Verbier, Switzerland and Chamonix, France, and see what all the hype was about with skiing in the Alps. I also ended up with a super fun day in Courmayeur, Italy. I find I may have erred in not making a trip happen sooner! Skiing in continental Europe is mind-blowingly awesome - plus, lots of new friends and friends from Jackson who were over there made the trip even better. So now that I am full of story ideas and armed with a couple of assignments, I'm looking forward to heading back in April for some more organized adventures.
Castles in Munich
Switzerland = punctuality.
The famed Clambin!
A mountain spring with a champagne cork floating in it, naturally.
My first day in Chamonix, strolling off the Aiguille du Midi
Wild Bill and Meredith!
Back to Verbier! My homebase while in Europe this time, I really loved this place!
Hasta muy pronto, Alps.
