Where to ski low cost, map and prices for “having fun” with the autumn snow

While in the south probably someone is still bathing at the sea, in the North is already all ready for the new ski season. If most of the facilities will open between the second half of November and early December, in some regions of Italy in a few days it will be possible to put the skis at the foot

The Stelvio Pass, in Lombardy, thanks to over 20 kilometers of all difficulty, for a total difference of over 700 meters, is one of the most important summer skiing and snowboard centers. Although the heat of summer has created some problems, forcing them to close ski lifts and ski slopes, enthusiasts will be able to enjoy over 20 kilometers of slopes until November 5th with a late-torch torch scheduled for Saturday 4th.

In South Tyrol, the slopes of the Val Senales glacier are already open: skiers have a 3,212-meter Grawand chairlift. “Hope is to be able to open all the systems within two weeks, allowing time,” explains the local operators. Solda has been on the road since October 21, due to the high slopes of up to 3250 meters.

Prices
It is still “early to give a complete picture of any price increases on plant prices” but, as explained by AdnKronos Valeria Ghezzi, president of the Anef (National Association of Operators), “where we should be talking about 2% at most. And I think even from a receptive point of view there will be no significant increases. ” “Investment in the industry amounts to 70 billion – says the Ghezzi – now snow is always guaranteed, also because the trend is that of a mountain to live all year round: even when it is natural you work because it enhances comfort of those who wander. ” “In any case, hope is that this year will be a ‘white Christmas’ – he concludes – not so much because we fear that the sector is affected, but above all, what are the Christmas holidays from the point of view of the collective imagination.”

Livigno

Livigno in October opening of the fund and December ski slopes

On October 15, skiing back to the bottom ring, while on December 1 officially starts the winter season with the opening of the slopes.

From October 15th to Livigno, it will open the bottom track, made with 50,000 cubic meters of snow that have been preserved during the summer season with snowfarm technique. Last winter, 100,000 cubic meters of snow were stored, of which 20 percent was dissolved in the summer, 30,000 were used for the Contrade Trophy (summer skiing event on true snow) and the remaining 50,000 will be used to open the bottom ring.

With such an anticipated opening over the other locations, Livigno becomes the ideal destination for training a large number of international teams and international athletes and biathlon riders coming down from the glaciers to train at an altitude of 1816 mt, perfect for the High Altitude Training .

For those who love skiing and snowboarding, just wait on December 1, when the winter season will be officially inaugurated with the opening of the ski slopes.

December 2 will be the turn of the 28th edition of Sgambeda, the granite of Livigno that is part of the international circuit “Visma Ski Classics”.

On the theme of scheduled snowfall, Livigno has embarked on an innovative road, taking part in the “Prosnow” European project of vast breath that also involves eight Alpine resorts. The optimization of programmed snow production is an important challenge for ski resorts. Today, the required water volumes are estimated at the beginning of the season on often unclear bases (eg, the worst ever recorded, with a observation period limited to one or two decades), and the decision to produce or not is generally taking the same day depending on weather conditions.

The Prosnow project, co-ordinated by Météo-France with 12 European partners, aims to develop a decision support service for ski resorts, based on weather forecasts (several days) and at the same time seasonal (several months).

This is a new tool that will provide meteorological information directly available to ski area operators (eg snow / snow stock), along with specific information on forecast uncertainties. Eight pilot stations in the Alps of France, Italy, Austria, Switzerland and Germany will contribute to the development of the service and to test the “demonstrator”.

The project will last for 3 years and has been submitted in response to the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Green Economy initiative, which is associated with the social challenge 5 “Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials”, with objectives for research based on the market for climate services. In addition to the latest generation forecasts, the project will also be based on the new seasonal forecasting services developed at European level under the Copernicus Climate Change Services (C3S) program.

What are the peculiarities of high contemporary Mexican cuisine?

The dishes are much lighter, there are more variety and more simplicity. While the technique in the kitchen is more complex, innovative. So it is very much improved. The recipes are both refined and balanced. And there is a lot of research, experimentation continues. ”

In Italy, even under the pressure of some producers, it starts to get the upper restaurant beer is paired with dishes both as an ingredient. I know that she has dealt with this aspect of the kitchen, especially with combinations of Mexican dishes.
“The beer is cheaper and has a low alcohol content. The Mexicans are not accustomed to wine, consume more beer wine, so the idea of ​​combining beer also refined dishes arose almost spontaneously. Of course not all beers are suitable to accompany certain dishes. I started to study and agree with the beer label Bohemia have conceived certain combinations, for example certain beers will accompany very well to spicy. ”

It intervenes as the creativity of the chef of a traditional Mexican dish?
“Everyone has his palate. Creativity blossoms after the study of flavors, aromas of different ingredients and then after attempts and attempts to combine traditional and local ingredients in an original way, but even before the creativity in the kitchen count more rigor and discipline “.

The culinary TV shows in Mexico have as much success as in Italy, in Europe and North America?

Apple Watch, WatchOS update: 2 will be the revolution of smartwatch?

Native apps and more independence from smartphones could change everything, first of all the applications themselves

Looking at the long term, the announcement of Apple’s biggest event of the fall this year may be less than advertised: development WatchOS 2. Tomorrow will be released and the new release will be a day that could change the relationship we have had up for now with smartwatch. The new operating system from Cupertino, designed specifically for the smart watch, is designed to make the app faster and smoother, since it will run natively on Apple Watch, plus introduces new dials, the ability for third-party app to display information in the form of notifications and an innovative way to see the future events, past and more with Time Travel.

But not only, the OS also includes new communication features such as the ability to respond quickly in Mail with dictation, Smart Replies or emoji, while Digital Touch free creativity, allowing you to use more colors for their own designs.

These components may be the first step to the final explosion of a market that so far only showed great potential. Native apps will allow developers to make the most of the components of the smartwatch, with results currently unthinkable. For example, a dating app could guide us to the soul mate simply following the vibration on the wrist, or an application designed to make you lose weight might block you access to Facebook and Candy Crush, until you have done the right move daily.

Until now smartphone and smartwatch are not comparable as regards the debut: as reported on the US site Techcrunch, in the first quarter sales of mobile phones sold 334 million pieces, watches only 11. But the state of the art in recent years it has changed and the room for maneuver for wearable devices was much narrower than that of the new phones. Yet change and greater independence from the iPhone and the company could revolutionize everything, creating a new need and opening space for new apps, all new and completely rethought. Who knows if it will be the beginning of the decline of smartphones, what is certain is that the smartwatch are intended to carve out an increasingly large and if the foresight of the developers (and Apple) will be repaid, tomorrow will all feel the need to buy us a new watch.

The brands specialize with new technologies: fabrics light but ultra warm, natural yarns prized (and more accessible) and new combinations of materials.

Madonna, the concert and the exhibition. Between tears and desire to fight

After the attacks in Paris, the pop star, albeit with suffering, he does not suspend the tour. Tonight is in Turin (concert) and Bologna (with an exhibition dedicated to her)

Before Bob Dylan and his guards in disguise at the Teatro Manzoni in Bologna, today controls a carpet for the long-awaited concert by Madonna. After the attacks in Paris, “The public security authorities are preparing the necessary measures to protect and ensure the safety of citizens,” says the Mayor of Turin, Piero Fassino, in view of the pop star’s concert tonight in the town of Savoy. On 14 November, the Queen of Pop has interrupted the concert in Stockholm for a six-minute speech on the terrorist attacks confessing the difficult decision to take to the stage: “My whole show is a celebration of life, the fight for the rights, and the will to fight for what we believe in. ” But “the show must go on.” And so the opening of the gates of PalaAlpitour confirmed for tonight (only) at 18. At 20 you begin.
For all Madonna fans that instead will not be able (or want) to participate, in Bologna today inaugurated an exhibition that traces the construction of the pop icon.

The gallery ONO Arte Contemporanea presents “Madonna: The Rise of a Star”, a group exhibition that brings together 60 photographs, of various sizes, Peter Cunningham, George DuBose and Deborah Feingold. Among the most curious anecdotes narrated along the way, the encounter between Cunningham and Maria Veronica Ciccone in 1982.

Ice-Q, the luxury retreat of James Bond

We went to Sölden to retrace the places where it was filmed “Spectre”, the utime film of the successful series of the agent 007. We got confirmation that Bond attends only the best places …

Ok, it will risk life too soon leaves the house, destreggerà well with great aplomb sophisticated weapons that perhaps not even exist, will always defend even the worst killers with a shrug of the eyebrow. But the most famous secret agent in the world ever attended (and women) the best seats. For the 24th film of the successful series of James Bond director Sam Mendes, with a cast of 500 people, he has chosen the Austrian resort of Sölden to shoot scenes of Spectre. Moreover, the father of 007, the British writer Ian Fleming, appears to have been a great admirer of the Austrian Tyrol.

Ice-Q, the gourmet restaurant at high altitude
Seeing is believing
So we went to Sölden and, despite watching the preview of the film in the original language (local …) before going on site, we found that the most breathtaking scenes of the film were shot on the mountain Gaislachkogl at 3,048 meters high. Right there, where there is the “clinic” in which Daniel Craig, the last character of the agent 007, goes to “recover” Léa Seydoux, (the French actress is also the cover girl of GQ this month) in the film Madleine The Bond girl blonde. Truly the “clinic” is a designer restaurant Alpine connected directly to the cable car of Gaislachkogl, considered one of the most innovative projects and minimal environmental impact of recent times. Ice-Q, the name of the luxury retreat, as well as 900 m² of glass facades that glow in the sunlight and offer stunning views of the Ötztal Alps, focuses on wine and gastronomic experience. The menu offers the best of local products accompanied by the best Alpine Austrian and international wines. And it is a particular wine in one of the protagonists of the refuge: a cuvee of pinot noir created by the union of three varieties from Italy, Austria and Germany and aged in wooden barrels. The name? Pinot 3000, as the altitude of the shelter where it is preciously guarded.
But Sölden, in addition to having the futuristic Ice-Q, has an area of ​​three mountains over 3 thousand meters of altitude, the famous Big 3: Gaislachkogl (3,058 m), Tiefenbachkogl (3,250 m) and Schwarze Schneide (3,340 m), all connected systems with the latest generation. However, if your passion is skiing, (let alone that of James Bond, as in Spectre do not see it even skiing tobogganing), well, there’s always the music: from December 30 starts the famous Electric Mountain Festival . Unless you relish the pit, if you prefer to stay to soak in Längenfeld, 13 km away, you will find the famous spa “Aqua Dome”.
And already, James never misses a beat.

Halloween ghost town between 9 History, abandonment and legends
Disasters massacres through the former mining operations: a review of some of the abandoned places more disturbing (and sometimes painful) in the world
And if you decide to spend Halloween in some place really scary, which would you choose? Nothing is easier: without doubt a ghost town, a ghost town remained steadfast to the time when, for various reasons (sometimes dramatic), has been emptied. Crystallizing over time items, suggestions, memories and moods.
From violence to disasters, disturbing legends to former industrial sites, scientific or extraction through horrific Nazi massacres about which there is still a long time to reflect – and far beyond the pretext of consumer macabre festivities Anglo – the cities are abandoned by far some of the most fascinating places, sometimes in spite of ourselves and them, on the face of the earth.
Skyscanner, the portal and app compare flights, hotels and car rental from 40 million visitors a month, he has put together nine. There is for example the isla de las Muñecas, the Mexican island of dolls south of the capital, already home hermit Julian Santana Barrera, popular tourist attraction in fact underpinned by puppets linked to the mysterious death of a girl.
Or the island of Hashima, Japan, also known as the island of the battleship, which houses an abandoned plant for the extraction of coal used in 2012 for Chapter Skyfall 007 and the following year for the Thai horror H Project. It closed the plant in 1974, died the settlement.
Then there is the history, the one with a capital. What you need to know, rather than visit – not least because, at least in the next case, you can not. Heartbreaking, tragic, bloody. That example of Pripyat, in the North of Ukraine at 110 km from Kiev, abandoned after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster of the close of 1986. Or the pain of Oradour-sur-Glane the French village of Limousin theater of the Nazi massacre of 10 June 1944: a reprisal over defenseless citizens for killing, by some partisans, the greater the SS Helmut Kämpfe. During the action 642 people were slaughtered and the country was set on fire: an impressive memorial outdoors, never rebuilt, still to this day.
Then there is Kolmanskop, Namibia, the diamond and site based German miners in search of fortune: a Central European city (with a ballroom, hospital, theater, casino) kind to the early ‘900 in the middle the Namib Desert. Desert, on the other, since 1954 has quickly taken its place engulfing most of the buildings. Another desert, that of the North of Chile, was instead the scene of the largest deposit of saltpeter in the world. Someone near refineries Humberstone and Santa Laura, live there still, but most of the buildings are empty and dilapidated. Since 2005 he is one of the most bizarre heritage protected by UNESCO.
The review of the portal closes first with Port Arthur, Tasmania, Australia, for years penal colony and frame eponymous massacre of 1996, one of the heaviest in terms of human life: Martin Bryant, originating in a suburb of the capital Hobart, in fact he crushed by blows of a firearm the lives of 35 people, wounding 21. Captured, he was sentenced to 35 life sentences.
Then with Bodie, in the Sierra Nevada in California, Mono County about 120 km south-east of Lake Tahoe, classic mining town from the Wild West. Finally with Grytviken, small village of South Georgia (not the US but the archipelago of the Atlantic not far from the Antarctic Circle, British territory claimed by Argentina): an abandoned whaling station in 1966. It houses today have a scientific station, a museum on cetaceans and a chapel.

Mont Blanc, it fights on the border. Chamonix: “It ‘France’. Courmayeur: “No, it’s Italian”

Mont Blanc, is quarrel between France and Italy. Chamonix has closed access to the glacier of the Giant from Torino refuge. “They removed the warning information that we had placed after the massive influx of tourists – said the mayor of Courmayeur Fabrizia Derriard – and closed the passage. But the shelter Turin is Italy.”

Rome, September 7, 2015 – The Mont Blanc and its border: where does Italy and France where he started? The dispute is beautiful open, and the last act of the tug bears the signature of the mayor of Chamonix. Access closed from Torino refuge of the glacier du Géant. Because what they say from Chamonix, “French territory”. Different opinion in Courmayeur – united by the Mont Blanc tunnel to Chamonix own – where they have absolutely no doubts: “Up there is Italy, have no competence”.

THE BACKGROUND In recent days, two mountain guides from across the Alps, to the order of the mayor Eric Fournier, have blocked access to the glacier. Reason: security issues. “They removed the warning information that we had placed after the massive influx of tourists in recent months – said the mayor of Courmayeur Fabrizia Derriard – and closed the passage, also creating danger for climbers who now have to jump over a hurdle to set foot on the snow. ” “The shelter is in Turin Italy – thundered still Derriard – and there the French have no jurisdiction. The decision to close the passage will have legal consequences. It is true, our land registry does not match that of Chamonix. We still we rely on maps NATO transposing the Convention of 1860 and put the border on the watershed. ”

According to the French border passes under the Torino hut, which then would be in the Transalpine territory, for Italians instead is in the middle of the glacier, about 300 meters higher, and therefore it would be in Italy. Delfino Viglione, Marshal of the Guardia di Finanza of Entreves, for years dealing with the question: “The boundaries are on the watershed, from the Dome du Gouter to the summit of Mont Blanc, the Mont Maudit to the Tour Ronde, from the Flambeau with up to tip Hellbronner. At altitude there are the stones, is the ridge that forms the boundary. ”

BOUNDARIES AND REALITY The last clash between the two neighboring municipalities comes more than two months after the comment Renzi, that on June 23 he said “We have not invaded France” with the back of a giant glacial heart of Mont Blanc. The externalization of the Prime Minister came not by chance: with the difficult situation in the Mediterranean and the tensions at the border of Ventimiglia France-Italy, also the border dispute of Mont Blanc has resumed vigorously share. And there’s more: during a visit to the new reality of Rai2 Mont Blanc, run Catherine Bailiff, have not gone unnoticed the four tents pitched on the glacier of Giant. The French have taken pains to emphasize that the Valdostane Alpine Guides “Ici c’est nous, c’est la France”. “For us – he said recently the president of the mountain guides of Valle d’Aosta, Guido Azzalea – is more and more difficult to work on the French side.” History now base camp for that very future of RAI-2 will follow the official channels, from the ministry IGM up, the Institute of Military Geography. The inauguration of the new plant of the border, which on June 25 was attended by the Prime Minister Renzi, were not present nor the representatives of the cable cars Chamoniarde, nor the mayor of Chamonix. Now even close access. It will serve to restore peace a reality?

MOVED THE FRONTIER The boundaries also gave headaches last year at Colle del Piccolo San Bernardo, a few kilometers from White. “The French with a bulldozer – recalled a guide – they moved the boundary stone of 150 meters. As it is obvious that it is immediately returned to his place.” The dispute starts over 150 years ago, from 1865, when the French drew an ear on the southern side of the mountain. Decision which became law and that even without being a parliamentary Luciano Caveri in 1996 and a European assembly of three years after Nicholas Rinaldi was able to resolve. Since 2011, Google Maps also took note of: a reinvented border and towards the Dôme du Goûter, and towards Punta Helbronner.
