Had a great morning ski tour today above Vallocine in the Chamonix valley. Plenty of untracked snow, and some trees to dodge. The Loriaz refuge is fully functioning, so there’s refreshment mid tour if you wish.

Some avalanche hazard up high still, but if you pick you venue there’s good snow to be skied.

Thanks to Stef for the local knowledge, and it was fun to watch the impressive TeleMark turns through the trees. Free the heel free the mind? (fix the heel fix the problem).
