Val d'Herens Ski Tours

~ Friday 17th February 2017

Despite the very tricky conditions in the Alps at the moment we've just had a brilliant week - mostly fresh tracks, mostly deserted, all of it good fun - exactly what ski touring should be. Full credit to the Norwegian team who, with 110mm underfoot, could deal with anything downhill - but also managed back-to-back 1000m+ days and a solid 1600m up the Pigne in a day yesterday. I will sleep well tonight!

With more warm weather and an altitude record to beat, we made the long climb up the Pigne d'Arolla. Spectacular views, no-one in sight, and surprisingly ski-able despite the wind-scouring!
