A few more pictures here from last week's ski touring in Nax and Grimentz. A blustery start to the classic Grimentz tour on Tuesday turned into a great day. We left the Lona lift in wind and low cloud but soon were skiing powder before skinning up to the Basset de Lona and skiing yet more powder down to the Moiry dam. A great day.

From Nax on Thursday we dropped down into the Vallon de Reche before making the long but gentle climb to the Pas de Lovegno. From there it's a steep skin/boot to the top of the Becca de Lovegno, then a long and varied ski down to Suen, where we'd left a spare car! Powder most of the way but low down we at last got to ski some proper crust!
