Chamonix Jan-Feb 2007 Part 1

Still waiting for the good snow.

Looking up to a misty Brevent on a rare snowy morning...




A more promising view from the apartment...


 

The lack of snow on the slopes takes its toll, the Prior delaminates and suffers a little rippling. The Rossignol and Nitro also take some knocks and a visit to the repairers...


 

Annecy

To avoid getting through too much kit and picking up the rest of the Valley's germs at the internet cafe, it's off to Annecy for the day...


 


 

 












 


 


 

Up to the castle...


 


 

A bizarre video-delivered tap dance class in the heart of the castle...


 


Was it something I said?





 


Vallee Blanche

A cracking follow-up trip with Graham, Jim, Jean & co after the first was cancelled due to high winds...









Not quite fresh-tracking, but very satisfying all the same. We had an affable, but reckless Kiwi in the group who struggled to comprehend the whole follow the guide & avoid the crevasse thing...





Jim...




Looking across to the route I'd done earlier in the season...

 










 
 







Dusk shots from the valley...
