Skier on the top of a Slovakia's holy mountain

I't Krivan. Slovakia's holy mountain. We were climbing there few hour in very deep snow and bad weather. Fog was so deep that you couldn't see your partner 5 meters ahead but the circumstances on the top were different... It was like in haven! Snow was perfect, sun was shining. We were chilling at the top, when I looked back and sow the skier on the ridge. It look amazing... Not like in Slovakia but as in Himalaya or Karakoram.
