Vallée Blanche powder

We’ve just got some photos in from the Vallée Blanche group, and the conditions looked amazing. The photo shows Rebecca absolutely ripping through the fresh snow, and the group were able to ski all the way down to Chamonix. Was that enough for them? Oh no, off up the valley to La Tour to get in a few more runs while the conditions held. On a more serious note, it was reported that yesterday 12 people fell into crevasses on the Vallée Blanche (none of our groups!), though fortunately none of the falls were fatal. This is an off piste run on a complex glacier system, so if you do not have the route finding skills on this terrain, or the equipment, you really should hire a guide.
