It. Is. On. We’ve been waiting for this since the Arnette ALL EYES ON ME Snow Rookie Project found its winners in the end of May 2011. Finally, the pan-European Arnette snow rookie team hit the road yesterday. Marius Bakken, Andreas Grong, Thomas Kigle, Gregor Betschon and Louis Labertrande met for the first time in Zurich, Switzerland and went straight to one of the most beautiful spots in the Alps – Saas Fee!
After a week of blue bird up in Saas Fee you might call it Murphy’s Law or even bad luck that the weather showed some proper antics as soon as we arrived. The glacier and the snow park was completely closed today due to nasty, gusty winds with snow fall up at the top.
Looks inviting, doesn't it?
But what can you do – right, you make the best out of it! We found a very funny alternative for so called down-days. Check out some impressions of the first action of the trip:

In the meantime you can help us keeping as many fingers crossed as possible for the weather to change for good. We gotta hit the slopes very soon - that’s for sure.
Stay tuned for more impressions out of Saas Fee and be looking forward to the rest of the week! We’ll keep you posted regularly!
