Arolla Ski Touring

~ Thursday 27th March 2014

Another good day in Arolla, lots of fresh tracks in the morning then some "slightly steeper" tracks in the afternoon.

Climbing up the Cassorte gully before...

...belayed sideslip down the other side. Not a good place to fall!

The ski down from the Cassorte is one of the best around Arolla. Steep to start, then wide open slopes down to Lac Bleu, from where a bit of energetic leaping around in the woods leads to a café.

A careful sideslip into the Satarma couloir...

...was worth it.
