here, one generally must ski it pretty soon
after a snowfall, as it is easily accessible and
also is marked on the piste maps. The Rossboden run, by contrast, took us once again into
real virgin territory. It was steeper than the
main route to Teufi and facing almost directly
north - a perfect formula for freeriding. Once
again, the sun set on two happy powder
hounds sipping a Gl├╝hwein in Teufi.
We still had one more day, and one more
mountain left to explore - the little Pischa resort. Pischa has a few similarities to Schatzalp,
but minus the gigantic old hotel. The area is
made up of one cable car and a couple of
T-bars, but the amount of terrain that is accessed from this small sampling of lifts is quite
remarkable.
Like Schatzalp, the ski area is almost all
above tree line and once again, there were literally fewer than 20 guests on the mountain.
The Davos/Klosters website describes Pischa
as "a paradise for anyone searching for skiing as
it used to be." That is a succinct and accurate
description, but one that Robert and I had already found to be true of Schatzalp, as well as
Rinerhorn.
Most of the terrain on Pischa is sun exposed, and by now, the sun had turned the offpiste slopes to crust. It mattered little. We had
enjoyed our share of powder during the past
couple of days and were happy to put a few
kilometers under our skis cruising the pistes
at high speed without the slightest worry that
we would have to slow down or abort our line
to avoid some struggling beginner, plodding
grandmother, erratic child, or ski school snake.
The pistes were groomed to perfection. At
closing time, we were still carving turns onto
the morning lines of corduroy created by the
piste machine the night before. Yes, this was
skiing as it used to be - only better. Pischa
offers modern-day grooming with 1930s
crowds.
If mom were alive today, she would be
99, and I am sure she would have felt right at
home on the uncrowded slopes of Pischa, gliding safely and happily and unable to recognize
that more than 40 years had passed since her
last visit. ss

The little area of Schatzalp, in the middle of Davos, requires a separate
lift pass. Hence, most people don't ski there, and as a result, we found acres
of untouched powder.

As in most Alpine ski resorts, interspersed among the slopes of Davos are a
variety of cozy mountain huts, where one can enjoy a scrumptious lunch, sip
a glass of wine, or just rest and enjoy the sunny veranda for a while.

Jimmy Petterson's career as a ski journalist began way back in 1985, and he shows no signs
of slowing down. In 2005, he first published Skiing Around The World: Volume I, an anthology
of his work, which included chapters about 47 countries in which he had skied. By now, fourteen
years later, Skiing Around The World: Volume II has been completed, and the total number of
countries included in Jimmy's two-volume seminal work has reached 75. He has probably skied
more countries than anybody else on the planet. Whether you are interested to read about household names of the ski world like Kitzbuhel, Ischgl, Davos, and Aspen, or you prefer to learn about
the possibilities for skiing in the Ukraine, Israel, Mongolia, and North Korea, you can find it all
in the pages of these two books. To learn more about these books, check out the digital edition of
