/ chamonix....would you??
Looking pretty windy and possible thunder storm risk later on. Possibly not high mountain
Not planning to get on anything big before saturday, possibly sunday if there is significant snowfall combined with winds, as seems to have been the case last night.
Haute Alps had some major storms last night and that weather window was heading straight towards Chamonix :(
It pissed down last night with major thunder and lightning and it's passing it down tonight though not so much thunder and lightning. The cloud base varies between ridge level and roof level in argentiere. Was meant to be going up to the gouter hut this morning but didnt :-(
Its been pretty bad here today. Rivers are raging and we have had a kayaking death today :(.
On a good note, its going to pick up. Forcast is sunny, sunny, sunny, sunny!!
There was fresh wet snow on the top of the Aig Midi yesterday and everything plastered on Tacul but not that much below 3600 metres. We heard some big slides, serac collapse as you would expect given the conditions...
Sorry mate dont know.
