Excellent cold, light snow in abundance in the area. An overlooked area by us British.

Skied "les rochers des enclaves" route today. Nothing too difficult as on my own.

Suspect the descent Cols back into the Contamines valley would be good too.

Not too tracked out yet....

Hi Tim, I agree Contamines often has good powder left long after Chamonix is tracked out. If you look at the Ski Hikes list on the www.funalps.com site there are 8 or 9 outings in the Contamines area, complete with links to English route descriptions, (including the "Rochers des Enclaves"). The descriptions are on the "wiki" type camptocamp.org site so please feel free to improve them.

+1 - I use the lift up from Les Pres and it's often got lots of powder and less tracked than Cham.
