Will's birthday/Beaufort again (part 2)

Ginny, Erica, Emma & Will on the Grand Mont summit:

The descent matched the views as well, with a few inches of powder to be skied, slightly wind-affected in places, but soft nonetheless.

Emma & Will go couloir-hunting (spot them if you can):

Wide open slopes of soft snow:

More couloir action:

The descent gives over 1400m of off-piste skiing right back down to Planay, and the last half-hour of hour descent was topped off with a beautiful sunset on Mont Blanc, with the full moon rising just behind it. Not a bad day out...
All that remained was to get home & back out for the surprise party organised for Will in a hut above Mottaret, with a classic fondue & a late, late finish...
