2021 - 2022 Far West Skier's Guide - 50

In Sölden, there is a nice choice of cozy huts for a bit of sun and refreshment in between romps in the powder. photo provided by Jimmy Petterson
possible, and Alex now chose one that was
halfway in between. He told us to wait, while
he " had a look " , and 40 turns later, he motioned
with a wave of his hand, and called out " Next " !
I used the excuse of being the photographer
as an explanation of why I should go
next. This was, however, an exaggeration of
the truth . . . no, it was an outright lie. I could
see full well that this chute was so narrow,
that two sets of tracks would decimate the
virgin, leaving no more good lines and no good
photos either. I dove in before any objections
could be made. In spite of the steepness of
the gully, the extremely deep snow kept my
speed in control, and I pulled up next to Alex
40 face shots later, to watch the others. We
were now back on the easier, open slopes of
the front face, but there were still not many

were again ready for some rest and relaxation,
and the nearby Hühnersteign hut was situated
conveniently a short schuss away.
That evening, Jonas and Phil fell victim
to an erroneous weather report that had predicted
stormy conditions for the following day.
We visited a variety of nightspots whose
names are now just a blur. While the wisdom
or loss of virility that comes with age sent me
home from the Sölden nightlife at the reasonable
hour of two a.m., Jonas and Phil stumbled
in somewhere between five o'clock and dawn.
After 10 to 15 beers and a fistful of Jack Daniels,
Phil had not even made it into his bed,
