/ Tour de Mont Blanc - current conditions
Happened to bump into a mate last night, who told me that he and his wife are due to leave next Friday to do the TDMB. Given the recent posts re. unseasonal snowfall low down in the Alps, does anyone have any idea of the conditions they're likely to encounter and/or kit they're likely to need? Neither I nor they have done the TDMB, so any info / advice welcome.
LOTS of snow from what the IMLs out there are reporting. high av dangers in places too by all accounts.
Call up the OHM in Chamonix for the latest info on conditions.
Cheers, will pass the info. on (and please keep it coming).
I would be perfectly happy doing it provided I had 3-4 people of the same standard with me. But at same ti,e I would expect the trip to take 50% longer thasn planned
Cheers Paul - have passed it on.
