Memories of an Alpine Summer

It’s been a great summer out in the Alps, where I’ve just completed my first season working as a Aspirant British Mountain Guide.

Superb weather and soft snow on the Vallee Blanche today. Even got some fresh tracks, although not shown on this video.
A pleasure to be skiing and guiding the white valley again 👍⛷
