Our summer season has been underway for the last couple of weeks, and the amount of snow in the Alps is incredible. Above is a photo of the Plan d’Aiguille hut, still partially buried in the spring snow. The benefits of this exceptional snowfall are very good conditions on the glaciers, and a very low risk of any rockfall. Some courses have been affected, for example groups on Gran Paradiso using snowshoes on the mountain, but the snowline is moving upwards very quickly with the heat. On Sunday valley temperatures of +27C are predicted. Good news for our teams next week.
