Great Spring conditions in the Alps

Spring has sprung in the Alps with warm days and cold nights transforming the snow. Good reports coming in from Cham with classics like the Couloir Barbey on the Aiguille D'Argentiere, NE face of Les Courtes seeing descents. In the 3 Valleys the conditions are great with some soft snow still to be found on hidden North Faces (Col du Rateau, Aiguille du Fruit). West Face of Aiguille du Peclet and the Gebroulaz Glacier have both been described as in "superb" condition in recent days.
