Skiing from Aiguille du Midi to Punta Helbronner again , this time with My wife Kiyoko and friend Dan

 

Kiyoko and me swapping crampons for skis, the mountaineers wondering what we are up to.

Dan and Kiyoko enjoying some firm spring conditions, none of the Pow I had a week earlier.

Not a bad ski for the first of August - lift stations mad busy with tourist though.

Nice! I was nearby at Les Houches recently (July 16-23) but did not ski. Lots of hiking, however. It snowed two nights out of the week down to about the elevation of Plan de l'Aiguille.

Congrat's!  I didn't know you got hitched.  Hope to ski with you again soon.

That's crazy, I would have thought that those pictures were taken during winter or at least early spring.
