Stair way to heavenly skiing
Just spent 4 days with Mark Locke and Ian Hutchinson. It was hot and it just seemed to get hotter, but because the sun stayed out we managed to find some sublime spring snow.
The most notable was on the Glacier du Toule. Every turn was fantastic but timing was critical. It was too hot and therefore dangerous for a second run so we consoled our selves with a very good run down the Italian side of the Valley Blanche.
Yesterday we skied the Berard Valley again find great spring snow.
Today we skied at Les Grands Montets where the weather was indifferent and the light was flat but we still had a run down the Argentiere glacier and a decent lunch at the Chalet Lognon
