... and had totally forgotten what it was supposed to be doing. The skies were clear and warm, although still cold for me!
But Stew wanted to celebrate his 40th birthday skiing, and as he knows the snow better than me, I left this part of the trip planning to him. After much research we came to Cervinia in Italy.
