Comments/notes:

With such easy access and descent (the route literally finishes at the cable car station) this route can get quite busy in high summer season. An early start from the Cosmiques refuge can work well. Otherwise, be prepared for some waiting at the bottle necks, but theres plenty of photos to take and sandwiches to be eaten.

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.

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 👍⛷
