24 days since it last snowed in the 4 Valley’s region of Switzerland, Rob and I decided to take out our skis, skins and back-country equipment to the back side of Greppon Blanc (2,714m).
Unbelievably the snow was quite good, especially on the north facing slopes: the snow was more like ankle deep ‘hoar-frost’ but was totally skiable and fun. It was a little firm and crusty in places, especially where the sun had hit at any part of the day.
Most importantly, we skied a couloir that no one else had skied yet, and we had fun. We only saw 6 other people over there all day. A 30 min hike got us back to the ski area.
