Well, it has been a pretty eventful weekend with lots of lessons to be learned. Bad visibility and a deadly avalanche reminded us that safety is paramount when enjoying off-piste skiing.
Thursday was a tough day with very limited visibility and Friday was marginally better. It was raining in the village and we skied up on the Pissaillas Glacier at the Fornet to stay as high as possible and we had moments of brightness, which were very welcome and made navigating much easier. The snow at lower altitudes was heavy but surprisingly skiable and, all in all, it was a very good day in tough conditions.
