We were pretty exhausted after our road trip, but with a couple of days of sunshine forecast to be followed by some poor weather we decided to make the most of the blue skies and push through. But we certainly weren’t up for a big day so we decided to go for a small ski tour above Flegere in the Aiguilles Rouges. Our initial plan was to head to Lac Blanc and then Col Belvedere and ski some corn snow, but as we were climbing Jerome saw that the shady faces still had some old powder snow so we redirected to Col des Dards. The top third of the descent was in nice winter snow which then transitioned to lovely corn below.

One of the best parts of the Aiguilles Rouges is the great view of the Mont Blanc massif, so I took out the DSLR to get some good shots.
