weather and conditions


Not a cloud in the sky. Virtually no wind. Pleasant temperature, but still cold while sitting around waiting for Aline at Col du Fenestral. I should have taken a spare fleece!


Excellent conditions throughout. The descents from the summit and from the arete above Fenestral were magnificent. Powder above about 2300m; snow light and easy to ski below Petit Pré, all the way down to Ovrannaz.

timing

Car Park 8.30a.m, Summit 1.00p.m, Car park 2.30p.m. 30 mins for lunch just below summit.

personal comments

This was one of our first outings in the high mountains on skis. Hence my lack of vocabulary to describe the snow! We had a great time: Aline's skiing showed signs of improvement (must not lift her inside ski on turns); David had enough energy for an extra descent and ascent from Fenestral, and Matt managed to stay upright throughout.
