12dec17--A Thank You to our host, Garnì La Tranquillitè, for sponsoring this 'live cam' view of the Sassongher Mountain and the gondola Boé, 1200 km. of ski slopes,
Hi Sharron! The smoke is actually a water spray that is under the freezing point shot from the pipe to the ski slopes and it will be a snow crystal.2014/12/05 16:53
Sharron -- the 'smoke' is Snow !! -- they are using snow 'cannons' to make snow (it does look like smoke though....!)
Can anyone tell me what the 'smoke' is? Forgive the silly question but here, in South Africa, we are not used to snow. Thank you.
Snow! I love watching the landscape turning white!!
02-09-17. Watched the cloud come up over the mountain and it's begun to snow!
Where oh where have Ken and Ernie disappeared to? I could 'listen' to their banter for hours - best comment section I've ever come across on these cams. Come back 'banter men', PLEASE!!
Ski season has come to an end....
Lots of snow falling today, and these cable cars seem to go very fast?..
Goodness me, the cars rock a bit don't they? Still think i would give it ago, might need a schnaps or two first!
Wow, its snowing and the cable taxies are out.... just need the skiers now. Lovely
Well hello Catherine! Thought it was just me n' Ken, the last two banter men on earth. I think Ken may have gone off in a sulk not having heard from him since my leg debacle 2 months ago. Could you nip round his house and knock on the door this evening, see if he's in? Or maybe just shout through his window? "ARE YOU THERE KEN? Me n' Ernie want to know if you're coming out to play?" (PS. Ironically, the good news is my old leg healing nicely. The bad news is I had already donated it for a transplant. It is now helping Finnish pole vaulter Wilma Murta to compete in Rio this week. Sod's Law!ARE YOU THERE KEN?? (Actually he might be on nights, so ssshh!) And by the way, are you that architect?
Well, here was I waiting with bated breath to see just how it all went, and now I am utterly disappointed with the outcome. Is it not possible to do it with one leg Ernie. Perhaps I could be trained up quickly, though on second thoughts I am terrified of heights, caves, small spaces, spiders, slugs, err.. frogs, oh this list is endless and am running out of time. Please don't give up I am sure with your new wooden leg and with lots of training you will be ready next year. Please advise! Ken I am sure we could sort something out so we won't miss out. Hope Giorgio has recovered from the shock!! Ken, can Betty take the one piece back? Has she still got the receipt?
Morning Ken. I'm afraid all your preparations (which was hysterical to read I might add) may come to nought. My ingrowing toe nail developed unexpectedly last Thursday so I was rushed into A&E. The doctors said 'the good news is we were able to save your leg.. you can pick it up from reception on your way out". Really sorry about this, I was looking forward to the trip. I've been trying to train up my Auntie Eileen's pet herring Derek to come and do the trip for me so you wouldn't be let down, but he got busy at Uni with his finals. He did keep slipping off the wire anyway, (no grip on the fins) so to be honest he probably would've been a bit rubbish at it. Hey ho, sorry to disappoint, but as they say, plenty more fish in the sea! Good luck! See yah!
