Le Mont Blanc 4810

14 years ago I promised to ski off the summit of Mt Blanc with Peter Folkman. I had confidently told him that we could get a helicopter to the top. When he arrived in Chamonix I told him he would have to walk. Which he did. Still conditions were not good enough to ski from the summit.
Today we took a helicopter to the Piton Italian and got dropped at 4200meters. Three hours climbing later we skied off the summit of Mt Blanc via the "Corridor route." We were back in Chamonix for 3.00pm
