No, Olivier, I was just on the edge of a path where the ski-slopes begin. I am thinking of bringing my skis home from where I have them presently and do some skiing here in the area. It is so beautiful here!!

Most interesting winter landscape.
I like those thin lines on the snow made by skiing.

Diederick,
What a fabulous landscape. Everywhere you turn, there is a spectacular photograph! Is Arona and the surrounding area this wonderful every winter???

Thank you all of you for your kind comments!!

As far as this winter is concerned, it is te first since some years where we have his much snow in Arona. Winters in the past have been severe, with -5° Celsius but not with the snow we had this time. There is always snow on the Mottarone mountain above Stresa but not as beautifu and powdery like ths time, Virginia!
