Vanoise variations - part 1

Once again winter 2016 has been playing tricks...having had an amazing day of powder skiing in Orelle on Friday, the foehn winds picked up and by Sunday morning there was barely a flake of soft snow left in the 3 Valleys....

After a day scratching about in the Courchevel couloirs with Jerry, Stuart, Jason and Costin on Sunday on a variety of wind-affected snow a radical rethink was required so we set sail for Le Fornet, where the 'Retour d'Est' had been doing the business, and had a great day lapping the trees in 60cm of light powder!

Tuesday was forecast to be sunny, and despite a dusting in the 3 Valleys we once again hit the road, and had a fantastic day in La Thuile (after battling the wind and cloud across from La Rosiere!), with some great coffee and pizza to boot:

The next 3 days have a good bit of snow in the forecast so all change again!
