The end of ski season...

...or is it really?

It has been some time now since we have returned from our skiing week in the Italian Dolomites and I expected for all this snow to give way to spring by now. Winter however has something different in mind since we had some heavy snowfall the other day here in Slovenia. This also means the start of mountaineering higher in the Alps will probably be delayed a bit this year - I guess it might take a while for all this snow to melt.

I believe there is a similar situation in the Dolomites. Even when we were there a month ago, there was lots of snow and now there is well over 2 meters of it at higher altitudes. More then enough for the skiing season to last for a while I guess.

Like every year until now we had a great time in Civetta skiing resort. If you are interested in my previous skiing trips to the region you should look for the Dolomites label.

Weather was great and there was even some fresh snow for us to enjoy. It fell during the night which was pretty convenient. You can hardly beat a right amount of fresh powder in the morning.

I included a few photos taken this year and I think they nicely represent the beauty of the area. There is Mount Pelmo visible on all of them - just like on the one I published last Wednesday (you can check it out here). I hope you like them all.

If you feel a need for skiing after reading this post, you might still get to enjoy some great skiing conditions this season if you hurry up. Enjoy it where ever you might go!

Ski season is no where near finished in my neck of the woods. We just got another huge dump of snow yesterday.

Enjoy spring skiing! Warm lift rides make the entire experience much more enjoyable.

I got nervous just looking at these pictures... I don't do heights. I have been skiing once and it was fun but never through anything that could be considered a mountainous area... more like a mole hill! Breathtaking though!

Thanks for visiting and also voting for me!

You should give skiing a try. It can be a bit of a pain in the ass at first but gets really enjoyable after a while. It has definitely become one of my favorite sports.

Very pretty day for skiing. We do not have much snow here because of little rain. I voted for you too! Good luck! :)
