Skinning up a wind scoured valley to the Col du Grand St. Bernard last Saturday it didn’t look like good skiing was on the menu for the day.. We stopped for some tea at the Hospice before climbing a small summit between Mt. Fourchon and Pt. de Drone. We got some great views over the Mt. Blanc range and some good turns on the ride down.
We then went back over the ridge into Switzerland and got some great practice in skiing wind crust from the shoulder of the Pt. de Drone.
On Sunday Max motivated me into going for a run off the Midi, wasn’t bad.
