Piled High in Cortina

No this image wasn't taken in Japan. This house crushing load of snow is what greeted Pally'Hi ambassadors Philipp Krogoll and Anderl Zissler when they drove south to Cortina in the Italian Dolomites on a mission to find powder. Unfortunately huge snowfalls had been followed by warm weather which created incredibly dangerous avalanche conditions. With the resort lifts shut and the sound of trees cracking under their wet and weighty load the guys made tracks back to Stubaital.
