Topic - Alpine ice climbing/mountaineering with no ski approach - tips?

jhw - on 15 Nov 2012
We are mooting climbing in the Alps, either cascade ice or couloir ice, in January. Unfortunately, not everyone in the team skis and nobody wants to snowshoe, particularly.

Can anyone recommend any venues for ice climbing or, if possible, full-on mountaineering where neither a ski approach nor snowshoes are required - or is this asking the impossible? I suspect it's asking the impossible. There's a reason everyone goes in June-October...

Any leftfield tips for reliable ice climbing destinations with a lot to do at WI4, in the Alps or anywhere in Europe, also greatly appreciated. We're already on the ball with Rjukan, Setesdal, Ecrins/Portes du Soleil/Valais destinations, I'm thinking more random places you don't normally hear about like Bohinj in Slovenia, etc...
