Chris and I had a plan this morning but when we arrived at the first climb it became evident that our destination was a lot further away than anticipated so we needed to make something up quickly and what a result! By playing with exposures we found really good winter snow all the way down as well as a couple of pitches of spring snow! It was an itinerary that most people have given up on (including me!) but it worked out surprisingly well and was very satisfying indeed. (See photos)
Meanwhile Andreas and Thomas were heading towards Tignes with Thomas skiing a classic route while Andreas had a funky run and a couloir in mind.
It’s been great to have the girls skiing with me and their Nana is having a lovely time and really enjoying the stunning weather and scenery. Unfortunately they have to go back on Thursday so we’ll miss the ‘Pigs’ and they won’t be able to see Karen and Andreas either. Bummer!
We’re expecting another 12 days of sunshine so don’t forget your sun cream! Stay tuned!
