Out with Ginny again today with a view to skiing a line off the back of the Dome de Polset. A short skin and climb up to the Col de Gebroulaz from the Col chair in Val Thorens saw us traversing round the Aiguille de Polset for the short climb up to the Dome. On arrival the intended line appeared to be more rock than snow, so we opted for the classic Gebroulaz/Borgne glacier combination. The far right branch of the Gebroulaz gave firm but soft snow, followed by a hot flog up to the Col de Borgne. The North side of this gave great spring snow all the way down the Glacier de Borgne to join the Mottaret pistes again for a well-earned lunch...
