Some people go ''back to black'' and their thoughts are like dark shadows. Some others go ''back to white'' and their shadows make the snow look black. It's not a pun, it's you when you are sliding down a snow covered hill. If you are addicted to ski, don't think about it, run to Vigla ski center, on Verno mountain.
