With natural snow rarely seen below 2000 meters this winter it was a pleasant surprise to wake up to 5-10 cm of fresh snow in Oberstdorf, Germany on the morning of the third stage of the FIS Tour de Ski 2017. Although not enough snow to ski on it brings the feel of winter to the area and today's Skiathlon competitions.
