After another cold front passed through yesterday, the Austrian Alps are suffering from NW flow again and it is a fair bit of a task to find a good area for flying today. In classical spots such as Greifenburg or even Gemona the cloudbase is predicted to be very poor. The forecast is also calling rain showers for the afternoon. These conditions together with NW wind could put anybody down, however our weather maps are positive about one corner of Dolomites, the place called Seis. The prediction for the top of the lift is 3200 m with mild NW wind of 15 km/h which is an ideal situation for Spitzbühel take off if it is true. So we are chasing the weather and are on our way passing by Feltre. The clouds are hanging a tat too low here, but let's wait until we get to Südtirol!
On our way to the take off. Getting excited as the weather looks perfect!
It turned out to be even better than predicted. Cloud base of 3500 m allowed us to fly to each of famous rock massives such as Langkofel and Rosengarten. And we did our homework with taking the pictures todaz, look at the result down here 🙂
Let's start from the senery over the take off:
This is how the rocky wall behind Seiseralm looks like if you get closer:
And here is Rosengarten, view from the cloudbase:
After flying to Langkofel Gerolf is on the way home:
Together with Arnfinn and Sasha who are also about to land:
We doubt there could be a better flight today in the Alps!
