Ascending towards the Lagginjoch, 3499 metres.

For the past three days I have been off piste skiing and ski touring in the Saas Fee and Saas Grund areas of Switzerland. On Saturday, 50 cm of snow fell which allowed us some brilliant tree skiing at the Plattjen area. Yesterday, we toured to the Brittania Hut for lunch before enjoying the snow in the Saas Fee ski area. Today, we had brilliant conditions for the tour of the Lagginjoch (3499 metres).

There is a short video on the facebook page showing the excellent snow cover and conditions we have experienced over the last three days.
