23/4/12 to 24/4/12 Tete D’Entre Deux Sauts and Grand Montets

Skiers returning from a descent through the trees at Grand Montets.

Yesterday, the weather was poor in Chamonix. Therefore, we made the drive through the Mont Blanc tunnel to the Aosta valley. We had a great day out ascending Tete D’Entre Deux Sauts. This 2729m peak is accessed from the Bonatti Hut which is regularly visited in the summer as it is on the Tour Du Mont Blanc. The hot chocolate at this hut is fantastic!

Heavy snow started during the late evening in the Chamonix valley. This has given us some great powder skiing today at the Grand Montets ski area. The snow continues to fall as I write this. According to the weather forecast, 60cm of new snow is expected.
