Haute Maurienne Steep Coaching & Adventures 2019

At the start of March i found myself once again making a pilgrimage to the Haute Maurienne for the 8th annual instalment of the Steep Coaching & Adventures week for the Eagle Ski Club. A very unsettled forecast with lots of wind and some precipitation forecast meant I spent vast amounts of time each evening and morning scrutinising forecasts and trying to figure a good plan of attack, and with a bit of flexibility and the odd drive we managed to piece together a week of really good snow and skiing!

Day 1 - increasingly wild and windy, but a fun warm up day:

Searching out soft pockets after the night's wind:

Getting onto the steeps:

...and some powder & sun to round off the week...:

Roll on the 2020 edition!
