European Dreams — Fun with Ski Touring Images by Lou Dawson August 4, 2015 written by Lou Dawson August 4, 2015 Austria. Thin when we were there in January — but still beautiful and fun backcountry skiing. Click images to enlarge. Clue. Lisa tops out. Wriggle it out! Long drive, but France! Famous peaks for both ski mountaineering and alpinism, anyone guess? Ah! Excellent French ski touring fuel. Result. Trip to the Austrian pro hardware store with the Fritz. The list was long and complicated, tiny parts for a binding prototype. Lunch, solo day Zillertal. Powder in the low Alps. Citroën says French. This says Austria, and the hunger from ski touring. 4 comments 0 FacebookTwitterPinterestEmail previous post Skiing Definitions: Backcountry, Touring, Frontcountry, Slackcountry, Sidecountry, Piste next post Backcountry Ski Touring News Roundup 4 comments Tom Gos August 4, 2015 - 4:50 pm Thanks for the pics Lou!

To everyone reading: I regret to inform all of you that the places depicted in these photos have sadly been bulldozed to make way for an IKEA. End of the public service announcement. Reply Mark Worley August 5, 2015 - 6:59 am Prototype binding? I’ll be waiting for more stories on that for sure. Great photos, by the way.
