Beautiful Views at Hintertux Glacier

If you’ve been reading for a while, you probably saw my post about Hintertux just as this winter began. In past years, I’ve only gone there when the other areas didn’t have enough snow. But this year I went back mid-season and found piles of the stuff, way deeper POW than the other resorts at lower altitudes.

Here are a few scenic shots:

The clouds were quite amazing at times on Sunday, as a storm cleared off.

In my last Hintertux post I mentioned extreme weather. Well, here’s the result when it’s –15C with snow in the air. Oh, let’s not forget, the whole top of the mountain was in a cloud.

After I melted all this ice out of my beard, I gave up and put on my neoprene facemask. Heh.

Pictures are all from my trusty Canon SD1000. That little camera has gone more vertical miles in my pocket than any other piece of electronics I own. And despite my taking the occasional hard spill on an icy slope, it’s still unscathed!

Since I love these shots, and don’t have any particular “favorite photo” (how would one choose?), the frozen beard goes out to Wendy from down under!

  1. Good lord! You really did have a frozen beard!! What a FANTASTIC photo :)

    By the way, I love the ‘frozen beard award’. Not a bad idea for a new post…. just saying!
    .-= Wendy´s last blog ..And the following awards go to …? =-.

  2. Hi Wendy, I didn’t realize how frozen it really was until I got home and saw the pic on the screen. My breath really turned the snow/frost into solid ice! :-)

    If I look on my carving snowboard forum, there are a few people with similar “frozen face” photos, haha.

  3. Looks like every day’s an adventure. Soak it in friend.

  4. Thanks, W.Z.! I’ll be there again tomorrow to video one of the guys in the last boarding video I put up. Should be great.
