First snow, first descent

Sunday morning and the first snow! Well, a bit of white here and there. But a time to open the season in my local hill in Grani!

The rest of the hill was maybe more dirt and mud than snow. But my skis were sliding well.

I also happened to have a memory card failure on my GoPro, so the video is short. Not all of the material I had could be rescued.

  1. Hi Jari,

    Nice to see that you got first snow. I follow your crazy/funny/mandatory blog from Fribourg in Switzerland where first tracks opened yesterday. 30-40 cm fresh snow at 1400m altitude.. :)
    Greetings to Grani and Finland!

  2. Nice to hear from you Thibaut! Snow at 1400m sounds very good! I was during the weekend in Chamonix, and while they had a dusting at that level, the main snow cover was higher.
