Both areas also receive plenty of sun throughout the winter. Sometimes this means a warmer day mid-winter and spring skiing later in the season. It does mean the snow can transform quicker here...

Speed Ski Touring – Grand Paradiso

Grand Paradiso – Speed Ski Touring Route: Grand Paradiso – Italy Category: Speed Ski Touring Route Gallery: Route description: The Grand Paradiso is a great ski mountaineering peak, and we've done it both as a stand alone two days, as well as part of a longer hut to hut tour. This speed tour by passes the hut night, and goes right from the valley. We do stop in at the hut for a quick coffee, but basically, it's a long old climb all the way to the summit. The ascent involves over 2000m of skinning, before the final boot...

It's that time of year.... the summer isn't far away and it's worth thinking about summer alpine plans early. Booking guides and huts are worth doing in advance! And that isn't a marketing ploy by the way :)
This year we have a few trips scheduled, including Mont Blanc (3 trips), Matterhorn and some lesser known peaks like the Domes du Miage.
Have a browse of the scheduled trips page - and give us a bell if you'd like to arrange a trip on different dates, we have a list of people who'd like to share some guided climbing adventures.

Another day of laps in the trees. Low angled slopes avoiding the avi hazard and trying to keep out of the wind. Pretty wild weather at the moment.
