>Although there’s always snow to be found if you’re high enough (I speak of altitude, people), the first snowfall of winter here seems to be when the Schneegrenze (snow line) dips under 1000 meters. If the clouds should then part and let in sunshine and blue sky, you have some pretty dramatic scenery. Below one can make out the snow line pretty easily, at the very bottom of the photo. With such steep mountains all around, it’s something we are used to noticing and commenting on, much like other people talk about the “lake effect” or other local weather occurrences.
