Verbier Extrême 2015 & new summits

Today was the Freeride World Tour's 20th time on the infamous Bec Des Rosses. I did not watch it, but as I snowshoed around a new summit (for me) on Savolèyres, I watched the beauty of all these mountains instead. The val de Bagnes is really an exceptional place and I am so lucky to be able to live in its beauty. I hope everybody had a beautiful day!

Lots of lost snowshoeing to do in Verbier

Everybody thinks Verbier is a busy busy and crowded place, well not today! We had all the sun and all the mountain to ourselves. It really is a pleasure to be out on days like this.
 Only see wild animal tracks! What a beautiful way to get to know what is going on in nature by trying to figure out what animal passed where you are about to set your snowshoes!
 Massif des Combins with the Verbier Cross-Country-Ski trail. Empty & sunny!
 Bruson in the sun with the Massif de Chamonix behind it and the Trient Glacier all covered with fresh snow!
 Glacier de Corbassière looking every shade of blue beyond imaginable!
 I almost feel bad touching all this virgin snow!
 Bench in hibernation at altitude - not ready for a picnic yet...
So many awesome options for hiking and snowshoeing in the val de Bagnes!

Super snowy verbier

Fantastic day to be out roaming the forests with snowshoes on!

The lichens were covered in powder, giving the trees an extra white fuzzy look!

For some reason it is always hard to explain the lichen. If anyone has any tips, please share them with me.

On the way back down our tracks were practically invisible with all the snow falling. It was awesome!!
