Mar 11 01
Another fine day. No more fresh snow, but still plenty of powder to be found if you’re prepared to make the effort. We chose one of our favourite day tours, the Crochues-Berard traverse.
The index chair lift and then the Floria button lift took us to the start of the tour (these lifts are just great!). Then it’s an hour of up hill skinning to the Col des Crochues. The last 10 metres or so are always steep, so the skis have to come off. Luckily there had been a few people before us, so we were able to make use of the bucket steps.
Then it’s a cool swish through deep powder, and then a long traverse before the next up hill to the Col du Berard.
After the Col du Berard we were rewarded with the most fantastic down hill glorious powder, then through the trees and eventually down to Le Buet.
Just enough time for a quick beer before the train back to Chamonix.
Another great day out.
