Back at the start of last week I had a couple of days touring in the Vanoise to finish off my 'alpine' season before coming up to Lofoten in Arctic Norway. Rob, Simon, Andy, Mike and Hugo are all ex Courchevel seasonnaires from way back in the day (think turn of the century...) and wanted an introduction to ski touring with a night in a refuge. The Col de la Vanoise hut above Pralognan is the perfect venue for this with relatively easy access, with potential for detours on the way up, and lots of summit possibilities before dropping back into the valley. With heavy snowfall just 2 days before we were a bit too early for the spring snow cycle tobe back to its best but still managed to find some great snow!
See you next year guys!
