All turning green again
13apr18--The ski season for the lifts is over. Today I watched a couple of youngsters playing on bicycles in the parking lot then climbed the dirty sno piles then climbed the outcropping of rock just beyond the parking area. Fun stuff. EnJoy EnJoy
9apr18--The lifts are not operating today at near 6pm and there are several areas no snow ground on the hillsides. Colfosco is starting its shift from white to green. EnJoy EnJoy
The snow looks to be receding - has winter finally released it's grip?!
18mar18--Thanks Richard , Two feeds in the "nearby webcams" <1km show the lifts closer up even when it is snowing like it is now @ 15:34 . EnJoy EnJoy
Thanks C. Sam. Your play-by-play is appreciated. Best wishes.
15mar18--Up'd a capture of a couple ( man in blue coat @ 4:20 pm) who were waving at the whirled in front of the church. The sun is powerful this time of year and melting more and more sno. The pile on the roof in the lower left corner of view is now gone. Parking lot sno piles are shrinking too. EnJoy EnJoy

Zed71 -- I look forward to seeing your pictures. When you have time, please tell us what good things you had to eat! I am in the US on the East Coast, so it is doubtful I will ever travel here. But I do enjoy hearing about the experience of other travelers. Did you make the decision to go based on viewing it on the camera?
@ Janey / Gwynn - Thank you for kind words of support. This is one of the very few sites I comment on as adult conversation still exists here. I don't really take pictures inside of religious places out of respect unless the occasion is appropriate. besides now you'll have to go to see what it's like inside. Small but beautiful. Once I get myself organised I'll upload my pictures and videos and post the link here for you to see. The scenery once you are on the mountains which the webcam doesn't show is just stunning. We do hope to go back one day.
Zed71 -- How fun to read about your trip. It sounds wonderful, except for the part where your wife was injured. I cannot imagine the person not stopping to help! It must have been very painful. I wish for her speedy recovery. I do not know how to ski, but I certainly enjoy looking at this scenery.What a picture-perfect place. I envy your seeing it in person -- especially going inside the church! I have viewed this scene often and, imagined what it would be like to be there. And, you have done that!You are very fortunate to have made the trip. Certainly once in a lifetime. It looks so peaceful and happy here, and, of course, beautiful beyond words.
Zed71, that is too bad about your wife! I hope she has a swift recovery! Glad you got to enjoy this beautiful village in reality, though, since most of us must be satisfied with just the webcam view. :) Perhaps you will upload a few pictures from views we don't have. Best wishes!
I've just returned after spending 10 days here. All I can say is Wow Wow!!! the place is even more spectacular than on the cam. I was also able to go in to the church which is amazing built in the 14th century. When we first drove into town and I saw this I was overwhelmed with the sight with tears in my eyes. The skiing and food in the region is some of the best I've ever had. We also had the same view from our hotel which is one street down. Unfortunately the trip ended up being bittersweet as my wife had a bad accident with someone skiing into her and skiing away. She now had a broken leg and needs surgery. You know who are and I will find you!!!!! To end on a happier note, if ever you have the opportunity to go here you HAVE TO GO! I heard even the summer is amazing with so much to do if you're not a skier. Happy viewing everyone and bring on summer :)
