I teamed up with Ben Tibbetts and Chris Booth to go ski the north east face of Col des Cristaux in the Argentiere Basin just after the prolonged spell of foehn that brought heavy snow to the area. This line is the easiest on the north wall at 5.1 but its still around 600 m of 40-50 degrees with some no fall terrain mixed in up high but generally relaxed enough to make some big turns. Ben has invested in a fancy powered gimble so it was an interesting project to go and simul ski while filming! In the cable car we met Loic Thivierge and Guillaume Mars who were headed in the same direction so we teamed up them for a social day.
