Big snows promise great skiing in the Alps!

Huge snows in Austria!

Check out the following quote from Resi Steigler, a U.S. Olympic skier from Jackson Hole, WY that took fourth place in the Audi FIS Alpine World Cup slalom in Reiteralm, Austria this past weekend.

“We had meters and meters and meters of snow. I’ve never seen so much snow,” Stiegler said.

According to a U.S. Ski Team press release, more than two meters of snow dumped on the course. However, Stiegler said she was liberated because it meant she could free-ski through deep powder, a treat she hasn’t enjoyed on the World Cup tour for perhaps two years.

We’re super stoked at Ryder-Walker, because this news means another great season with our sister company, Alpenglow Ski Safaris. Alpenglow has some great Alpine ski trips on tap for this winter, and last weekend’s storm in Austria promises enormous grins.
