The first time I visited the Alps with a wing was in 2008. Gloomy and daunting, matching my mood after the Australian elections last night. We could be in for an interesting year given the exceptional amount of snow about and the early #redbullxalps start this year. Will there be more weather like this? This valley, the Reintal, lies on the course line to turn point 5 on the Zugspitze massif.
