Seriously good video Swiss, you've nearly cracked the sound with the external mic.

landscape is still a bit flat though  :164:  Couldn't you find some more spectacular scenery  :020:

Drift HD 1080...  I started a thread in Accessories on video, there seem to be lots of interesting alternatives in all price ranges.  --sv

Super vids - in late may we started a round Mt Blanc run from Albertville and had coffee at Bourg St Maurice when we decided to cut the run short as we could see very bad weather was coming in from East. We took a quick run up the road to Thuille - and foumnd it blocked by 3 metre high snow at the Italian border. We then decided to try to get back to Ugine via Beaufort - again the road was blocked by snow.

Seeing your video makes me think we should try again next year but later in the year when snow all gone.

Wow, cool (I mean cold maybe)!  Yep, May is a bit early for the high passes, they aren't really guaranteed to be open before June, you can get lucky and they can open early, but they can also close again.  If you're ever "in the neighborhood" again, let me know I'll come meet ya.   :152:  --sv
