Saturday, October 17th!!!!!!?This is insane! In central Europe, more closely in Germany, we had 27 °C last week! Now it’ s around 2-5 only. Snowfall above ca 700 m!!!?I’ve been following the snow forecast the whole week. This morning I wanted to see how much it really was? I’ve done early season days in Spitzingsee (1 hour from Munich) before. That was, if it was early/mid November….?Of course the lifts are still closed, but the terrain is not rocky or anything. Perfect for getting the first snow experience not on an overcrowded, overpriced glacier resort.

I took a quick decision after checking the webcams and packed my stuff and hit the road. Just me, myself, and THE board for those days – Gyrator time!

me and my

Munich 9.00 am

Spitzingsee parking lot 10.00 am, 1100 m
parking 2

Some tracks in early-early season pow

tracks up

look back

Touring skiers are faster on the way up, due to the tracks. They can’t beat a Gyrator on the way down though!

Rosskopf, peak 11.00 am, 1600 m; feeled temperature: -15° C
I hope winter will continue like this amazing kick off day!
