Cracking first day for the offpisteskiing Vanoise Off Piste/Day Tours week today.
After some warming up on and near the pistes we managed to find some good (and safe) powder to ski high up in Mottaret. Alot of care was required in slope selection following the heavy snowfalls, strong winds, and varying temperatures of the last few days; and there was plenty of avalanche activity to observe (including one large slab under Speedball which looked skier triggered!).
Although the risk for tomorrow is down to 3 alot of care is needed off-piste at the moment, so take care out there!!
