|Getting tired of 'skis on, skis off' for all the snow patches we decided to walk quite a lot!|
|Skinning (at last!) up to the Conscrits hut.|
|The Conscrits hut is very well |
equipped, complete with drying
room and mini library!
|A litre of Earl Grey and a slab of victoria sponge make a good teatime snack!|
|Christophe heading off on his splitboard to do a new descent.|
|The wind on the ridge...|
|My only skiing photo! I was too busy trying (and failing!) to stop faceplanting....|
|Terrible weather at GM....|
|Floating above the clouds.|
Luckily there were only two skiers doing the couloir that day and they didn't cause any major avalanches onto us. The other 3 groups were knocking a lot of stuff down though for some reason they were all pitching the entire route and we quickly overtook all of them. I didn't have very high expectations for the Chevalier but it was actually really fun (except for wading down the North Face in waist deep sugary snow...) thanks Trine for suggesting it!
