In Chamonix we think (and hope) that this last snowfall will stay with us and become the first of many creating our winter base.
Just in case and not one to miss some fresh snow I along with Susie, Rhianon and Nate headed up to see what we could find
Earlier in the morning
The first turn is the toughest.
Out onto the face
Up onto the ridge
Mind the gap
Bit narrow in places
First track on the ridge belongs to Mr Nate Wallace
Some nice turns in the wide open
A few pretty turns
Nate getting some pow
The Midi looking wintery now
Another angle on the day :)
The snow was soft on velvet over a smooth base - most of the summers crevasses are under an nice firm layer - pity they close the lift in 3 weeks :(
