Sunny days have been few and far between this year here so you’d expect the lift company to be ready for business on the first sunny powder day for ages. But it snowed a little last night, as forecast, as it does in the mountains…so the lift opens late because they have to clear a few terraces with a snowblower. Its a uncontrolled mountain so they can’t even blame it on avalanche control.

The looks say it all. First there, queuing for 2 hours and not in the first bin.Screen Shot 2014-02-17 at 17.15.42

Good fun once we got there and worth the wait. Super good to be back on the big hill 2800 m vertical runs down the West Face of the Aiguille du Midi to the road.
