More classic ski touring yesterday, this time in Les Contamines, about 45mins from Chamonix.

I skinned up from the valley, but this tour would be great from the lift system as well, saving about 1000m of height gain I guess.

The light was a bit hazy, so not many photos. Quite a few tourers about, and a few folk on snow shoes as well.

I picked a quiet slope to ski, some grippy hard snow about.
