Summer snowfalls

This was the view from the Lac Blanc refuge yesterday morning, as unseasonally low altitude snowfalls dusted the Alps. Fortunately the forecast for the week is for sunny and hot weather, so this snow will blow away and melt. It goes to show that in the high mountains of the Alps, you need to be prepared for all conditions, and especially your kit must be able to cope with all weathers. Our equipment advice section of our website is receiving a lot of traffic at the moment, so if you are in any doubt about any kit, have a look at http://www.icicle-mountaineering.ltd.uk/kitlist.shtml
