Digging deep…

Ski touring today… up at 630 to get the weather window. One way to well and truly get rid of the NY hangover.

Drove to Besse, about 20 mins from Deux Alpes, and toured up to the Sommet de la Quarlie, about 850 metres of ascent in ever worsening conditions. The ski down was fun as the snow was never great given yesterday’s warm conditions which meant rain on the snow followed by a refreeze, so a hardish crust. Felt a lot better watching the UIAGM guide, who was guiding another group, fall over twice.

Snowing heavily now so hopefully a powder day tomorrow.
