Clouds and flat light made for difficult ski conditions up at Hintertux today, but I sure had fun shooting photos up there with my telephoto lens! It's been snowing a lot in the western Alps the last few days but the storm didn't quite made it over to central Tyrol, aside from a few centimeters of blowing snow.
