Lovely ski yesterday skiing above Chamonix’s Aiguille du Midi on Mont Blanc du Tacul. 600 m of lush cold blower powder down to Col Simond. And its September. What a gift from the Gods! With the warm sunshine, clear autumn air, and quiet mountains, its just pure pleasure being out there. Today I had the pleasure of skiing with young passionate skier Chamoniarde Nico Borgeot who I met skiing the Mallory (under the cables of Aiguille du Midi) in May.
Glorious day skiing powder on Chamonix’s 3842 m Aiguille du Midi. Such a pleasure to share some sick turns with friends – and there is more snow on the forecasts! After skiing I flew down the Valley Blanche next to the Chamonix Aiguilles and got the fright of my life as a Eurofighter Typhoon scorched past!
Kicking off the 21/22 ski season at Chamonix’s 3842 m Aiguille du Midi. Lift opening times have been announced – all systems are go after a busy summer guiding, winter should be flat out.
