Our Winter 2017 ... how was it?

Posted on: April 22, 2017

The season had some good cold weather, and the beginning of the season had us looking for ice in Cogne and scrapping around a very dry Peptite on the Petite Verte...

What can we say about the winter ski season? Not the greatest in terms of powder days and new snow, but there was good weather, so we still got a lot done. Highlights? Powder days at the Grands Montets the last week of February, ski touring in the Otztaler Austrian Alps, Marbrees couloir from the Skyway, and storm riding in Courmayeur. I skied a Haute Route with incredible weather in the second week of April- a little hot sometimes, but blue skies every day! The season isn’t quite finished- some of the high altitude itineraries are still coming into condition!
