More Arolla Ski Touring!

~ Thursday 1st March 2012

 Unseasonal hot weather - not just warm, it's definitely hot - has meant some early starts and finishes but still some good skiing. At Evolene on Tuesday we toured up the Pic Artsinol before skiing the steep gully from the summit on great snow. Wednesday in Nax got off to a dodgy start with shocking crust below the Brechette, but then some good powder lower down and some great skiing in the lift area. Today we toured up to the Vignettes hut, had lunch on the helipad then skied some really good snow and fresh tracks back down the glacier.
