Ski touring around the Gaulihutte, Bernese Oberland.

The Bernese Oberland is one of the most popular ski touring area in the Alps. Everybody knows about the 4000m peaks around there, very few people (except the locals) go checking out the “wild east” side of this mountain range, say it’s difficult to get in there as you have to skin a lot to reach the two main huts,…

The Dolomites ski traverse.

Last February I moved to St Anton in Arlberg for for a week of deep powder and off piste skiing  with Rich and his friends from Tiburon, California.
