Could anything top a bluebird day below the Matterhorn skiing fresh powder, drinking Italian espresso, and eating home made lasagne?  Fortunately we found it in the White Valley above Courmayeur the next day!  We skied 2000' of calf deep powder in some of the most impressive mountains in the world, and all alone while we watched hundreds of skiers descend the Midi route in the valley.  It was a perfect cap to Eric and Lisa's awesome adventure in Europe.

Who is the goon in the red jacket??? Silas sounds like things in Europe are continuing to go well. Did you make it to La Grave? It was fantastic there?
