Grand Montets Powder

Having been away from Cham for a week or so, I got back to some pretty poor weather over the first part of the weekend. However, the sun was supposed to be out on Sunday morning so Tom, Sophie, Sharon and I headed up to Grand Montets and were rewarded with some superb powder.

The snow had fallen on a really icy layer so you couldn't really rip it but after a long spell of warm weather it felt great to ski some cold stuff.

Cold smoke!

A final run down the Lavancher bowl.

As ever at GM, things got tracked out pretty quickly so we were home by 1. The weather is now back to grim but it will hopefully be tanking down with snow at altitude!
