Artificial snow

I took this photo last Sunday at Bardonecchia (Val di Susa, 1312m): the snow cannons are working on the ski run in the mountain.

Tomorrow I am going someplace where I might see something exactly like this. I am guessing that I will not be able to get as wonderful as capture of it as you did.

Ciao Pietro, bella foto,
un saluto nevoso

Wonderful view, Pietro!
Have a nice weekend!

In Alpes, you prevent from global warming! ; )
Or waiting for la Befana? Santa Klauss is far better-equipped to adapt himself to snowy mountains, no? In these weather conditions, I would prefer a sleigh to a broom.
Buona fine settimana, I won't add nothing else in Italian.

So that's how it looks. Making artificial snow seems like cheating, somehow. (But then, I only got to ski once in my life.)
Great picture.

Nice image. But I think it would be better to find a REAL solution against global warming instead of fighting the symptoms!
(I have never skied in my life, so I possibly misunderstand the purpose)

Pietro: That is a neat shot of the ground snow storm.
Pietro this is a cool shot. the mountains are so pretty.

Very cool photo! I like the view.


Great capture! You spend a lot of time in the mountains. Lovely.

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comments. Enjoy your weekend!

Amazing, Pietro!
Have a nice Sunday!

buona domenica anche a te !

So it can snow up! Now I know. The natural snow is quite beautiful, too!

Thanks for your visits, Pietro!

wow, pretty. we don't get snow from where i come from. only ice we see is from the freezer =P

Hi Pietro! Don't think they need artificial snow after this weekend; it seems it's snowing almost everywhere in central europe... ;)) Great shots!

I echo Mariposa. Hahaha! I love seeing snow in pictures!
