For the third year in a row the snow season begins with my dear friend Tal Niv, founder of Harim Mountains Snow and Mountaineering school.
It is with great pleasure that I will join him to guide his clients in Grindelwald, as well as educate them to snow and avalanche awareness and management. I am very happy to meet old and new faces among the participants, which are all Israeli ski instructors.
Once again, I will not be disappointed with their progress as well as with the typical jokes I'm longing for all year long :)
You'll find hereafter a few shots to remember these very pleasant days, although, like everywhere in the northern Alps, snow was cruelly missing on the slopes...
I hope to see you all very soon !
