Despite the summer temperatures there is still some good skiing to be had up high. Today we went over to Val Thorens with the intention of skiing the W Face of the Aiguille de Peclet, but having sat in the cloud below the boot up to the summit for half an hour did an about turn and went for plan B, the North face of the Mont de Peclet. 20 mins skinning takes you to this minor summit, which is a great view point for the surrounding basins, which are full of good skiing lines. The north face itself gave some soft snow from Sundays flurries, with a bit of dodging between rock bands, kind of an extra-mini version of the north face of bellecote.
