Fresh Alpine Snowfalls

After three weeks of cold dry conditions, it has been dumping snow in the Alps, and the snow is set to continue until the weekend at least. This photo was taken today snowshoeing near Lavancher, between Argentiere and Chamonix. Running this week is an ice climbing course, and an off piste skiing course. The skiers couldn’t have timed it better! Obviously all the snow has pushed up the avalanche risk from 1 to 4 (out of 5), but there are still many safe places to climb and ski. These snowfalls were much needed, and the conditions are great.
