在瑞士聖模里斯滑雪 (三月十一至十六日手記) / Skiing in St. Moritz, Switzerland (March 11-16 Diary)


這六天滑盡了聖模里斯附近的三個主要山嶺: Corviglia, Corvatsch-Furtschellas 和Diavollezza-Lagalb, 每個山各有各的特點,其中以海拔3303metres 的Corvatsch Glacier冰川頂上風景最好,沿著冰川滑下來,可直下至海拔1870metres山腳的吊車站(相差是1433metres vertical drop)。

我發覺這裏的山雖然高,但難度欲似乎不同北美,例如:這裏的 'Difficult' 平均較加拿大落磯山Whistler/Blackcomb処的 'Black Diamond' 容易,在六天中,我只找到一個 'Double Black Diamond' (an unmarked trail that I went down) 和一個 'Double plus+ Black Diamond' (I did not go down, not wanting to risk falling hundreds of feet if I missed a tight turn - see the two skiers in the photo)。但話得說回來,欧洲的下山滑雪冠軍總数仍是比北美多。

Envy you so much. It's not just the beauty of the nature, but it's so good to be back to the nature.

Xiao Zhu: I am sure you too will have the opportunity some day (might need to learn downhill skiing first though).

You are ABOLUTELY correct - we are very much a part of nature !!!

That reminds me of what the painter Giovanni Segantini's (1858-1899) triptych: Life-Nature-Death. Our life is encompassed by the beauty and forces of nature.

Thank you for pointing it out.
