My belief was that boarding in the Alps was only about powder and
extreme, plus the weather perhaps. This made me somewhat disappointed when
we arrived and there was virtually no powder in sight, and the steep chutes
weren't covered with snow at all. A day on the mountain was enough to
change my mind though.
