900 Pow Pow

Looks like the Big Snow God has placed a snow canon over the Alps
An other powder day in the mountains but amazing enough the snow pack feels quite stable!
Today we brought our skins up to the south side of the beatiful Mont Jolly with a 900 meter descent down to Le Contamine

The touring around Contamine is only reduced by how fare and how many meters you want do fill
With the right mind there is loads of tours, from easy to ++hard
But, in the world of "earning your turns" it's all there...

After a quick glance at the queue it was easy to change the mind, why stand 5 min in a row when the skinning possibility is just around the corner

An route de Plan de Crets

The best track up this side is via some small chalets and through "the Santa Claus trees" before arriving on the summit ridge over looking the ski area
Time for a quick cup of tea before the descent
Some of use making it more cosy then others

Into the magic..the next step begins
And tomorrow the weather forecast show more of the white stuffLooking out through the window I believe themSnow map showing the situation. Red dots means 70cm or more of snow for the next 6hours ending 1p.m Sunday 07.
