 On Thursday we made the classic Tour of Mont Collon from Arolla via the Col des Vignettes and Col de l'Éveque. This is a beautiful and long day trip through stunning scenery, but as soon as we left the Haute Route bumps the snow on the descent was...awful. Oh dear. 

Looking for a relaxing finish to the week we went back to Nax yesterday. A quick tour into the Val de Reche and up to Mont Gautier found excellent spring snow - so good we did another lap!
