Well when it gets really hot a snow covered mountain looks pretty nice but its sure been a long winter and its still hardly above freezing here.
I live about 10 hours from here and visit from time to time. This is Canada's third largest city. Vancouver. Population about 3 million. The mountain is snow covered all year and you can sit on the hot beach and look at it. Its amazing The mountain is called Mount Baker. Its in Washington, USA. [link] One more: [link]
Of course these aren't my pictures but I would sure love the chance to take some like them
here i live at 850 m and the winter is really a nice season, not so freezee.. the temperature is very rarely under -10 and more between -5 and 5 on the day... so you can go out without problem ... but the mountain around are not so impressive
most of those around my home are around 2000 m , les Ecrins (4000m) are not really far (80km by road) but I go there twice a year
i'll be buzy this summer , but i little hike in alpinist in the Ecrins will be a nice idea
Wow! Nice temperatures. The last place I lived in was at sea level but gets as cold as -50 in winter and will stay below -40 Celsius for about 2 months. For 6 months its below -20 with never any warmer.
Here where I am in the mountains its much warmer. About -30 for most of winter. Rarely above -15. Never above freezing. We have a world class ski hill and is the second highest in North America at about 8,500 feet to the top of the gondola but nearby peeks of 12,000 feet. It has a vertical drop of over 4,100 feet.
My house is at 3700 which is 2500 above the town and valley below. It snowed for over 2 months without letting up but only about a cm/day. Where I came from in Eastern Canada we would get 3 feet in a day and sometimes 3 times a week. Its b big change here I like it!
