Aiguillette des Houches

Keen for a steadier day today we took the Brevent lift and skinned across the Aiguillette des Houches. Getting across to the peak is pretty amazing - there is a huge amount of good terrain in that area, and very little traffic. The skin up to the peak itself is pretty brief - less than an hour - but there are loads of other good looking slopes to go at.

From the summit the snow was pretty cruddy but good fun, and we finished with a long ski down the summer walking track all the way to Les Houches train station. I wouldn't be able to describe where we went, suffice to say it was fast, narrow and hilarious skiing!
