2012 Starts Off on the Right Foot

Just thought I would share some fabulous photos I took yesterday while out skiing with my friend Kate.

The photos are taken at Les Carroz, near Flaine in the Haute Savioe/Mt Blanc region.

I went down on Monday by train to visit a friend, Kate. Within an hour of arriving to her house, we had skinned up and were climbing a local touring route in the dark. Wherever Kate goes, adventure follows!

The next morning we headed towards Chamonix and enjoyed fabulous off and on-piste conditions. Despite the bad quality perhaps you can still appreciate how spectacular the day out was, by looking at the photo’s below.

Alas, this morning’s ski-touring plans have been abandoned due to increment weather (I am writing this from a train on the way back to Zurich) However, I feel satisfied after yesterday’s rendezvous yet hungry for more snow fun.

Let’s hope the weather settles soon so we can enjoy more of the same very soon!

  1. And it has been snow up here for the past 12 hours. Difficult to get out of the underground garage this morning and on to the roundabout in Seglias to get to Silvaplana. Bill
