Good Spring Skiing
After the mega melting the conditions stabilized and we got some good spring skiing conditions. Reuben and Antony Berg skied at Les Grands Montets. The next day we went up the Aiguille du Midi and skied the magnificent Enver du Plan which was in great condition.
On our third day we did the classic Chamonix ski tour the col du Berard again getting a great spring snow descent. It was particularly satisfying fr me because I was asked by a visiting American Guide if I was in fact the author of the Mark the Mountain Guide Books?! I almost felt famous.
Antony had to leave for work commitments which was a pity because it snowed 30cm. Reuben and I had planned to go hut to hut ski touring but had to make do with powder skiing
