[Oh, hello there! Damüls looking well flirty on November 15...]

It's now mid-November, and we're stoked to report that storms and cold temperatures have been semi-constantly hitting the European Alps and giving resorts varying degrees of winter makeovers. Webcams embedded on site have been mindlessly firing their images to the black hole of the internet, so we decided to bring a bunch of the most promising-looking captures to actual human beings to fuel the hype for winter proper.

Dare we say it, this autumn has seemed to have had more pre-season dumps than we can remember in a while, so here's hoping for a blower winter with plenty of base – hopefully that hasn't just jinxed it. Yeah, blame us if you're having a BBQ in a wifebeater on Christmas Day...

Whatever, there’s something about snow-covered resorts this time of the year that brings the froth… Long may the dumps continue!
