Hey, thanks I’m glad you like it! Too bad about your friends though… They’re definitely missing out! :)
However, yes I’ve been skiing in italy more precisely in Canazei and Marilleva. Italy is a great place for skiing but it’s illegal to go off piste in the Piedmonte region without carrying avalanche safety gear. And there is in fact piste patrollers to make sure you obey that rule, otherwise you’ll be fined heavily! Which is a good law to reduce the numbers of tragic accidents during the winter period. Nevertheless, it’s my opinion that if you use some common sense and stay close to the prepared piste you should be fine with a little bit of powder skiing. So to avoid getting a huge fine for having a good time in the powder 20 meters from the piste, I’d probably choose a resort in France or Austria :)
You gotta love Norway! :)
Literally the view from my living room!
