5 x grand day out

Hello again from the sunny slopes.

This time the snow report is all about sun and skiing. I kind of like this combination. Also I finally look like a panda but with a red nose. These are the side effects of spending too much time “out of office” ;-).

We have done some grand skiing and some grand apres-skiing. Simple as that.

During the weekend we headed out to the Swiss side and took a freeride tour to Trient. It took just 3 hours including the transfer back to Vallorcine by bus. Today we tried the same route but start point from Col de Balme. We managed all the way into the woods on the riders right. Then it became too much for me and we had some family consultation in the bush, climbed back about 30 meters 35 degree uphill and found easier way down to the valley. I bought Jari the largest cold beer in da house at Relais du Mt Blanc and tried to be a nice girl for the rest of the day 😀

On a sunny Sunday we did The Vallee Blanche with a group of 8 people. It was such a nice tour! It was like many say – over appreciated – in terms of skiing, but… still… nothing to be missed. We took easily the kindest route down – after all it was Sunday. Our grand guide Skipe leaded us through 17km of massive glacier with some great skier-stories on the way. Though, I guess we all rated the 400 stairs we had to climb to get to the Montenvers train back down to town for afterski the toughest part of that grand day out ;-).

Smooth operators.

And the beat goes on…

The past days have also been the warmest. When it’s -2 in the morning it gets high as +16 in the afternoon. Some cold beers absolutely included there. Looking forward to April..things just keep getting better. So kippis!
