Looking up the highest lift at Cristallo, one of the Cortina ski areas. In addition to the challenging ski run this lift accesses some famous off-piste runs. The discoloured snow was the result of a storm that began over north Africa depositing huge quantities of dust across the Alps. As the snow melted back, the dust became more concentrated and by making the snow darker, surely caused it to melt faster than usual in spring 2014.
