As we did for quite a few years, we head from the Kootenays in BC, Canada, to la Surselva in GR, Switzerland. This shaped up as quite a winter! Enjoy how the snow is piling up and the plows gather for a near endless removal. There were episodes of rain in January which made the pack settle but then more gets dumped to introduce February.
