Piz Buin Snow

Lots of people know the name “Piz Buin”. This is mainly because of the sun protection brand of the same title. In fact, it’s the name of a mountain with a Swiss side and an Austrian side. I have the impression that the Swiss side is climbed by fast climbers in very small groups while the Austrian side is entered by large groups of less experienced people on a single rope (I wrote about country-specific differences before; this seems to be one of it). Piz Buin has a summit elevation of 3’312 m / 10 866 ft, being climbed in winter and summer. If you go in spring, make sure you choose the nice couloir between the “little” and the “big” Piz Buin ;-), it’s highly recommended!

Well, this image of Piz Buin and adjacent peaks was created on a day with rather dull lighting conditions. We went to Piz Minschun by ski, ascending the last part to the summit by feet. Being surrounded by clouds most of the time, there were a few minutes of clear view, so I decided to use this opportunity. The original image measures more than 15k*7k pixels, revealing a stunning amount of details.

I hope you like my black & white image!
