Not as high and nowhere near as hardcore as yours Bow down

The current one hasn't been out of the country yet so obviously not high at all.

The previous one went to:
Breuil-Cervinia, Italy - 2050m

Simplon Pass, Switzerland - 2005m

The first one went to:
Stelvio Pass, Italy - 2757m

Grossglockner High Alpine Road, Austria - 2504m (sorry no car pictures as it was parked in the multi-storey Shocked car park)

The slopes at Cervinia were amazing but pretty much all red. Too much for us as we are not very good to be honest (especially the young ones) Embarassed So we didn't ski there and just went to see the Matterhorn up close from the other side (been to Zermatt side before). The idea of cross-border skiing is Cool though.

We chose a small Swiss village called Burchen for skiing on that trip where the slopes were gentle and the ski school next to our apartment's patio Very Happy Current: VW Golf banger until my delayed XC90 arrives

Just realised 2757m is 9045ft so I have taken an RRS slightly higher than Camerlock but on a fully paved road. Current: VW Golf banger until my delayed XC90 arrives

Some of my very recent high altitude pictures. Genuinely tough conditions too but the car managed without snow chains. Did put on decent winter tyres though. The all-seasons wouldn’t even have made it to the top of the mountains, let alone bring us back down safely!
