Three skiers from Val Gardena, Italy, climbing up the Grenz glacier before dawn

looking across the crevasses to the great alpine rock-climb peaks of Zermatt

Italian skiers climbing steeper now -- still cold -- with the Dom/Tschhorn + Alphubel peaks beyond

on the Zumsteinspitze summit (altitude 4565m) (with statue on stand) looking south to the "Capanna Margherita" hut on the Signalkuppe summit (4556m) -- where I'm going to next

looking west from the Signalkuppe to the Liskamm -- with skiers below still climbing up and around

As I ski down I meet skiers still climbing up, near the Parrotspitze -- note ski tracks descending from right, coming from the Gnifetti hut in Italy, over the Ludwigshhe

giant ski run down the Grenz glacier . . .

. . . with a variety of slopes and scenery . . .

. . . especially under the northeast face of the Liskamm
