Lots of different stuff
The weather continues to bring lots of cold snow which is great. On Thursday I was out in the thick of it with Nick Rowles learning about snow safety at Le Tour. It was bitterly cold.
On Friday Chris Boulton returned with eight of his pals and we went to Combloux and skied [and fell in various streams] the beautiful valley to Gietaz before having a late lunch at the Christomet.
Overnight it snowed a lot. So much so that everything was closed in Chamonix. We headed to St Gervais where not only did we have fantastic snow but the sun came out and we were able to get first tracks off the summit of Mt Joly in near perfect deep light powder.
