    Should be right as I can prove pretty easily that I landed in Milan and left the country immediately over 2 weeks ago, got plenty of accommodation receipts, Airbnb messages cancelling accomm etc.

    Just waiting for my two week off work here in London. It all seems inevitable now. Meant to be coming back to Aus in July for my brothers wedding, hoping it’s all done by then :mad:

    In life there are generally always some benefits of everything. My flight back from LHR to Brisbane was half-full on both legs so I had 3 economy seats to myself and just sprawled watching sport/movies and slept flat for 24hrs was best trip back ever!

    Although it’s be a bit more climbing, I imagine the skiing will continue

    Just on a fl
    just on a flight back from Cham now so got out just a few hours before the French shut everything down apart from hospitals etc. plenty of good snow and touring to be done in Cham but a long walk before you hit snow at the moment. Up the Pierre a ric would be the only way to start with skis on at this point. Could be a good MTB up with skis on back option elsewhere :)

    Yep missed it by 6 hours.

    As mentioned earlier we’re going to do some social distancing, we have a couple of sick parents and I have another family member with respiratory issues so we’re not going to see them for a bit.

    Tignes & Val D'Isere were shut at midnight local time at very short notice. Bars, restaurants & shops left with loads of unsellable stock. Hire shops are allowed to open today (Sunday) for the return of gear. The road down the Isere Valley a huge traffic jam. Touring on the slopes banned. The Gestapo were out last night to enforce the midnight shutdown. Already talk of businesses going under. Seasonnaires having the 'Job of a lifetime' experience cut short just when they would be getting the most slope time in. All this just after being told the season would continue to 3rd May. Shutdown due to French PM.

    There was a warning here (Netherlands) for all people who visited the Zillertal ski area in Austria between 8-15 March, because there is a high risk that they could have caught the virus there. Especially people who went to bars and restaurants in Mayrhofen, Gerlos, Zell am Ziller and Aschau-Kaltenbach are at risk.

    Only got the GoPro out once in two weeks cause we had too much fun and when I did I forgot it was set to Linear mode so not a great angle on the video. Anyhow these two minutes and thirty seconds alone was worth getting Corona for :)

    Lifts may have been long closed in Austria, but clearly some people are still skiing. Noticed on the weather panorama on Austrian morning TV fresh tracks on the Planai.
    So had a look at the webcam. https://www.planai.at/en/planai-up-to-date/webcam

    Hey hey, Jacob is actually a Swede and he only took the Norwegians up there to show them how it's done ;)
    Back in the days of straight 200s the Rond wasn't very busy and why be a woose and slide down the arete when you can just drop in to the Poubelle as a warmup run :)
    Sorry about the picture quality but no drones or GoPros back then...

    K2 Extremes! I loved those skis!

    Look how much more snow those days. I had to back off an attempt at the Rond because it was too icy back in 2012, these days you need to rope in to it and the Poubelle just doesn’t fill up.

    Bit of a fan of Nikolai Schirmer. He and Joonas Mattila have made some excellent short films for Black Crows.
