Isola 2000 this Sunday

Hi,

I'm heading up to Isola 2000 this Sunday for some snowboarding, just wondering if anyone's interesting in coming along?  Can't offer a ride as I'm taking the bus myself, but would welcome the company (alas, my wife's not into snowboarding)

Let me know if your interested!

Thanks,
Ray

As you might have guessed, there was definitely an orange tint to the snow in many places.  The sand had the unfortunate effect of acting like a brake, especially on the flat traverses.  In retrospect, it's probably better no one took me up on my offer, I would have felt bad coming back from that outing had I talked someone into it other than myself!

What colour was the snow? Serious question - I wonder whether the mountains got as much sand as we got on the coast.

Well, the Ski Bus got diverted to Auron, but I did make it there and back!  There was tons of snow, unfortunately it was mushy and there was tons of fog to go along with it.

Hopefully, I can make it to Isola next time under clear and powedery conditions!
