Of course, its pretty difficult to do a ski tour without leaving Aspatria, and being lazy, I didn’t really want to leave the house. After all, it was wet and cold outside, and there was some good stuff on the telly. So I geared up , hopped onto the touring machine and set off. If I closed my eyes, I might easily have been on the Trient glacier. Next time I’ll put Pete’s dvd of the haute route trip on the telly, for true authenticity. It wasnt long before I was severely overheating, just like the real thing!!!
Luckily when I got the the hut, la gardienne had prepared gateaux de chocolat. Yum!
