Snowy times

2017/2018 was a bumper ski season in Europe. It snowed lots the whole season. Plus, we had a blast of polar air that sent temperatures down to -10 degrees on the Swiss plain, which was followed by heavy snow – more snow than I have seen in Lausanne while I’ve been living there. Tanya and I did our best to take full advantage of the snowy conditions by going skiing. We went to Saas-Fee a lot, as is now our habit: Saas has become to me one of those special places associated with good times, ranked with the Blue Mountains in Australia for chuffed-feeling and awesomeness with friends, but with lifts and apr├Ęs ski bars instead of sandstone and meat pies. Here are pictures of snowy times in Switzerland this winter.
