 Preparation for the Patrouille des Glaciers is going well apparently, despite the weather. Arolla has become a military base, with 5 helicopters parked at the improvised landing site in Satarma today. This has to be the prime slot for your military service - Arolla or Afghanistan? Amusingly only days after the commune installed parking meters in Arolla, the army have closed off all the parking! We had a great ski in windy conditions up to the Vignettes hut, then 1000m of great untracked snow back down after lunch.
