So much for autumn!

The weather is frankly horrible here in Cham right now, with heavy rain throughout all of yesterday and no sign of any sunshine until Thursday. Snow has now fallen to roughly 1700m and I think there will be more people up the Midi with skis than with crampons when the sun does come out. 

The Flegere and Brevent lifts are now closed so options will be quite limited for climbing in the coming days. I'd say that heading down the Valley to climb in the Arve area or going through the Tunnel to Italy would be good ideas, although the best solution is probably to get in the car and head for the south coast!
