Yet more snow in the French Alps.

After a great week in Chamonix working with Al Powell from Alpine Guides last week it was back to work in Courchevel today...Blue skies and powder on the menu:

With snow falling most of Saturday right down to 700m we were met by a good 2 feet of fresh powder on the slopes, with the lightest snow in the trees where it had been sheltered from the winds. Higher up the snow was soft but heavier and slightly wind affected. There were a couple of good slides set off during the PIDA avalanche blasting in the morning, and clear evidence of windslab on slopes from N through careful out there...

More snow is forecast as of tomorrow, so it could turn into a great January!
