Magic Tunnel (part 2)

After a sociable evening drowning my sorrows over Tuesday's ski incident plans were made for another foray through the tunnel on Wednesday, for some powder action in Courmayeur. Ross kindly sorted me out with some Sanouks (a classic 'early' fat ski, complete with swallowtail), and Jonny & fellow ex-Fort Williamite Rob Jarvis completed the all-star line-up.

The snow in Courmayeur didn't dissapoint - a 10cm fall overnight had filled in alot of the previous tracks, and we found ourselves once again skiing up to 50cm of beautiful fresh powder.

Happy days, back in the bubble for another lap:

5 hours of non-stop powder hunting followed before we collapsed back into the car with aching limbs...
