Good snow and skiing before the holidays

A few calm days are ahead teaching through in Courmayeur but here in Chamonix conditions couldn’t be better.
Last week saw a group from the tour company Jagged Globe that had awesome skiing. A few days of low cloud didn’t matter as the rocks are so well covered you can ski anywhere!
Yesterday was with a chap who’d flown from Sydney to see if these reports of great snow were true, as the above photo shows, he wasn’t disappointed!

By 1130 we’d done 2 laps on the Grand Mur skiing the central gullies (that usually are too rocky) in top of boot deepness. He was happy and I wasn’t feeling too shabby either. By midday we’d skied 3800m of descent in only 3 runs – the beauty of the Grands Montets!

Bring on the holidays.
