The glacier is quite uniform during winter, and the slopes are never too steep. We commonly ski this peak in the morning before making our way to the mountain Refuge of the Mantova or Gnifetti.

It’s a great way to start a ski touring trip in the Monta Rosa area, or as a ski tour in its own right.

A subsidiary summit of the 4215m Vincent Pyramid, the Giordanispetx is a great ski touring peak accessed from the Gressoney lift system.

Last lift accessed ski tour of (my) season from Contamines yesterday.

Plenty of folk out enjoying the good conditions on the classics.

A weeks holiday away from the mountains now. Rest time before the @trofeomezzalama race at the end of the month.

A big couple of days on the wild Miage glacier taking advantage of the great spring ski touring conditions.

Up Mont Tondu and then today over the Miage after a night in the Conscrits refuge. Which served a vegetarian meal to the whole hut last night, meaning it’s now my favourite refuge. 🌱

Over 3500m of ascent and some very good snow on the way down.

Well the express Haute Route didn’t exactly go to Plan. A meter of fresh snow at altitude put paid to that.

We headed south and spent a great couple of days around the Mont Thabor area. Nice hut, quiet and loads of good skiing. Despite the cloud.
