Hey guys! As their is very few reports from Europe I am sending the ending season trip report.
Winter in Europe was very flat, no snow till January and then little bit snowfall but nothing crazy, well.. few spots got heavy snowed in. Anyway we targeted small mountain village in Austria -call Vent(1900m) in The Ötztal Alps (German: Ötztaler Alpen, Italian: Alpi Venoste) a mountain range in the Central Eastern Alps, in the State of Tyrol in southern Austria and the Province of South Tyrol in northern Italy. Early spring conditions, snow was getting wet and heavy after 1pm, some of set powder on the north exposure, temperatures from -1 to +12C
avalanche level 2. As we are intermediate splitboarders and skiers we took it easy after we discovered cracks and snow started to slide down gently.
The village location was away from resorts nice and quiet. If anybody planing holiday in Europe i could recommend, accommodation 15euro p/p self catering. Not bad.

Nice! Love that place. Did the 'Venter Runde' long time ago! In your full picture set I noticed the Ortovox checkpoint station! Are those found at famous trailheads all over the alps now?

Thanks guys, It was my firs time in Ötztal and was amazed. Shwalbster, I only seen them in Vent and this is place dedicate to skituring so I assume they put them in other places like this in Austrian Alps, the checkpoints are sponsored by RaiffaisenBank, useful action taken. :thumbsup:

Usually only to be found in ski resorts at the start some off-piste runs.
