Route description:

One of our favourite ski treeing areas, Combloux is known as a family friendly ski resort only thirty minutes drive from Chamonix.

With lots of blue and red runs to choose from it's a great venue for the beginner to intermediate piste skier. However, if you duck into the trees there are numerous off piste runs to ski through the (mostly) widely spaced forests, with fresh snow to be found many days after the last snow fall. The slope angles generally aren't too steep meaning it's a good choice when the avalanche conditions are difficult elsewhere.

There are numerous short ski tours and hikes for those with energy where you can access whole valleys away from the main ski area. Although Combloux doesn't have the super classic steep off piste skiing that Chamonix offers, it's a great choice in fresh snow or bad weather when the trees give you good visibility.

Obviously, to get the most out of Combloux, you should ski with one of our experienced mountain guides!

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.
