Col du Mone

Continuing this years theme of trips over to Pralognan, Friday night saw us doing the shuttle run to drop a car in Pralognan, with a view to skiing the Col du Mone from Courchevel.

This route is easily accessible with 1 hours skinning tops to hit the col, and some good spring snow up for grabs on the way down. A pair of huge golden eagles were floating about just over our heads as we skied (very big, but not lammergeiers...)...

Roy & Ginny on the descent:

A hot bit of skating down the cross-country tracks (no easy slide like last week) got us back into Pralognan for a change into comfy shoes and some quality pizza action for lunch!
