Me : Right hand to the crimp, left to the side pull, good, now high step, rock on, flag, to the chip, undercling, pinch. Quick, hit the Gaston, lay off it, outside edge and backstep to the mono. Easy, right?
@kimberly.strom : I miss left right left right running.

It is still too early to ride the Grosse Scheidegg. But you can learn all about it in the March issue of Vélo Magazine which features our story on the giant of the Bernese Alps. So... learn some French and get inspired!

It's always fun going through our image database for a project and having an image stop me with a great memory. Today, this one did the trick. It's of one of my favorite people, @semi_rad at one of my favorite climbing areas, Aiguille Dibona. Good combo.

Our goal is to inspire mountain experiences. But sometimes that also requires connecting people to guides to help realize that experience. 
We list our ten best reasons to hire a guide, and some may surprise you. 
If you have your own story in relation to all this, as a guide or client, please share.

It's kind of funny how in the minutes prior to this simple little image we were trying to figure out why we love being in the mountains so much.

The Schwarztor Ski Tour is a must do one day tour from Zermatt that has it all; glacier, crevasses, big and wild. What it doesn't have is much up. So, make that a freeride tour, of sorts.
More info at the link in our profile.

It's been a tough week at ALPSinsight with everyone calling in sick each day. Thankfully, we're all feeling much better, have great tans, and will for sure be back in the office tomorrow, while it rains.
What an amazing three days the Alps just had! This one from a #JungfrauRegion favorite, the Wildgärst.

Yesterday and today... some of the very best snow I have ever skied during my 20 years in the Alps. One more day of sun tomorrow, then we go warm and wet. So, one more day to call in sick!

With heavy snow falling throughout the Alps today, and sun forecast for much of the week, now might be a good time to start considering getting out of work options.

If you are a ski tourer, this is an important post. Please let this horrific experience and terrible story have a positive impact on your own decision making. 🙏

The lesson to be learned... blue sky, sun, fun times and friends are factors that make us vulnerable to ignoring warning signs with avalanche danger. Case studies often show it's the time knowledgeable people talk themselves into bad situations. I carry this story with me as a real memory, a reminder to stay on alert, I hope my words do the same for others.

It's funny how yesterday I posted a comparison of the Alps' Best Ski Tours and then today we skied one of the best tours imaginable, yet no one outside our region knows about it. Sometimes the true gems are like that. Or maybe it was all the untracked pow? --> here, after almost 2000 meters gain, @kimberly.strom is just about there. Big views of the Jungfrau behind and above #Lauterbrunnen.

The Ortler Ski Tour is one of the best all around ski trips in the Alps. Great skiing, just the right amount of not too scary terrain, and big beautiful peaks make for a great ski experience. Throw in some Italian food at super friendly, comfortable huts and you have the Ortler Tour. 
There's more info at the link in our bio. If you're interested in a guided trip, check in with us and we'll connect you with our new mountain guide network.

The Alps blow minds. And, one of the most impressive landscapes of them all is the Aletscharena, where the Alps biggest glacier, the Aletschgletscher flows for 23km. It's a massive arena of 4000 meter peaks towering above glaciers. It's also home to a whole lot of 3000 meter ski peaks, a hut system, and a multi-day ski tour widely known as The Berner Tour. If you enjoy skiing big peaks, dropping down to remote huts in an almost Himalayan landscape, and seeing a part of the Swiss Alps that only those willing to do some work get to experience, then put the Berner Tour on top of your spring ski touring life list.

Our first proper ski tour of the season included bitter cold, howling winds, and one cloud in the sky. That one cloud, except for just this one moment, sat parked in front of the sun for the entire day. I guess we were in the right place at the right time at least once today.
As far as a condition report goes... This is from the Kiental, near Thun. It was certainly better than not skiing, but we really need more snow.
