#3: valley ski
Wind dropped overnight and a perfectly still morning greeted us. A waning moon hovered in the icy sky.
A slow start is expected on the first morning in these brittle conditions and we skied only 4 sessions up Sassen valley, camping at 4pm with the light dropping. Everyone doing really well despite the challenges that -24c present.
We will see the sun very rarely. Not because it’s due to be cloudy most of the time, moreso it’s not yet high enough to shine into the valleys. We see it’s existence in the alpenglow on the mountaintops.
