Walter Bonatti Hut

We drove through the Mt Blnc Tunnel to a different world. Stacks of snow, cold and great touring conditions. Gavin Foster and I skinned up to the Walter Bonatti Hut and then skied back down through the larch trees. Not bad considering it is still only November

Walter Puppy

A new Bernese Mountain Dog arrived this weekend. He is called Walter. He is eight weeks old. Also we went skiing at Les Grands Montets for the first time this season. Conditions are quite good and there is a good snow cover above 2000 meters

So I have not posted a blog for a while because it was between seasons. We did have perfect weather for week after week, but despite this no one seemed to want to employ me so I decided to paint the house instead. I just managed this before it snowed and got very cold.
Last week we had about 50 cm of fresh snow in the garden and temperatures down to minus ten. Photo was taken by Gavin Foster
