Last season for three weeks straight Austria got pounded with snow. All I heard was, "you have to get over here." Meanwhile, Leanne Pelosi and I were in Montreal shooting handrailings, which was fun, but powder, we had to go. Since we were already on the East coast we decided we'd book a couple flights and hop on over the pond.

Once we reached Montafon we noted how warm it was, it didn't really feel cold enough for good snow. We soon learned that it had indeed just warmed up and was suppose to rain for the next 5 days. The following shots are the result of searches for blown in pow pockets, shredding in the rain and enjoying all the Austrian Alps have to offer. The girls worked hard, memories were made, schnitzel's were eaten. It was a fun trip.
