What is more alarming

to me: it is 25th of December and there is no snow (as everywhere in the Alps)
Happy New Year and happy climbing in 2016.

Re: What is more alarming

I agree, i have never seen the Alps so dry in late December and the smog hanging in the sky is just the result of the lack of rainfall. In recent days some snowfall happened, but for the moment is a small thing...
Happy New Year and happy climbing to you, too, Michael.
