Summer in South Tyrol - Farmers are cutting the grass on steep slopes, hoping to bring the perfuming hay to the barn before the rain sets in. An Alpine climber is carefully feeling his/her way over a steep rock face, glad to reach the Alpine shelter before the thunderstorm.
Winter in South Tyrol - When Jack Frost asks Mother Hulda for a dance, it is winter in South Tyrol. Short days and cold nights characterise the season. Yet, winter is a great season for all Alpinists, thanks to the countless thrilling activities which become possible on snow and ice.
Yay, it's finally spring! Flowers are sprouting, trees are blossoming and turning green again, meadows and Alpine pastures are awakening, appearing from under layers of snow. Crocuses open their fragile, perfuming calices overnight to form a blooming carpet, white and lilac. High up in the mountains, there is still snow. Spring combines the best of both worlds.
Eventually, autumn arrives and Mother Nature outgrows herself, offering rich harvests and wearing her very best dress of gold and red. Bright-yellow larches, fresh and clear air, leaves dancing in the wind, all meadows neatly cut - autumn is beautiful, a last display of nature's greatness before the world goes to sleep under a fluffy white blanket of snow.
