 No work today, so we went skiing again. Perfect weather, so we went back to Bertol after turning back in cloud yesterday. The track had blown in so we got the pleasure of re-making it. From the Col de Bertol there wasn't a track in sight. Where is everyone? Plodding round to the Dent de Bertol was hard work but worth it - I'd been fearing crust on the sunny slopes down to the Arolla glacier but it was powder all the way!

Traverse of the Bouquetins anyone?
