Chasing powder in South Piemonte

Starting our ski road trip at the airport of Milano, we decided to travel to the very south of the Italian Alps. Weather forecast seemed to be very promising: lots of fresh snow in Limone Piemonte and Argentera area, followed by really cold temperaturs. Luckily weather forecast was more than right. We were skiing in the lightest powder snow in all aspects, and this at end of February.

The ski area of Limone Piemonte offers cool offpiste terrain. But be careful, top lifts hardly reach 2000m. So when the sun comes out, the snow can get crusty soon. But too warm temperatures were definitely not a problem for us. Our main problems was more that it looks like that italian car rental companies have never heard something about winter tires. At least we are pros now in installing snow chains!
