The summer has come to an abrupt end with the arrival of the first winter snows. My first day out on the Midi was an incredible run on Glacier Rond’s hanging glacier (my gopro didnt work in the cold that day so I posted the iphone footage in an intsgram reel here https://www.instagram.com/reel/CklTpfSoAGf/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link. It was so good, better than any turns last season. that we bootpacked back up and skied it a second time before flying off the serac and back to town. While we still need more snow for more conventional runs without a wing, there is nothing but snow on the forecast for the next two weeks. I will definietly go over to Skyway, which just opened, and check out some more mellow stuff in the upper Valley Blanche.
So here’s a photo gallery of some of last years highlights to get you in the mood for skiing and climbing this winter. If you are looking for guiding services then please get in touch as soon as possible as bookings are flooding in. All the best, Ross
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!
