Skied and boarded many times. Brilliant scenery.
Followed a group along upper route at crevasse section near Hellebroner. Route wasn't clear and middle route was too crevassed so took lower route. Just under 4 hours for our first independent route! Scared myself silly descending the soft ridge at the start!

Ski descents of normal route (3) and grande envers (2) routes
snowboard descent with guide, lovely fresh powder and sunshine
Third and final day of Conville course. Snow ridge used to descend to the Col du Midi (it was terrifying!) then went up a rock ridge (about PD?) to the Réfuge des Cosmiques. Scary but fun! Had to ascend the snow ridge again to get back up which was better than descending - if it wasn't for the gusts of wind...
Convile course, Nicole
Gros Rognon to Requin hut and down Requin Couloir, and then again going left of Gros Rognon and Bray variation - perfect blue skies and fresh tracks
Took quite a detour over the top of the crevasses.
Done in reverse.
A fabulous day out. On the way back in the gondolas we saw a helicopter rescuing someone off the Cosmiques Arete.
ended the season with a quick play down the valley blanche. came down close to the gros rognon. was skiing like a spanner and took one tumble :( last decent day of skiing down hte usual route. one bridge half collapsed under dan and was gone by the time id crossed it. folks behind had to pick another line :P
first back country foray with adventure base. guy guided and the boss girls came along too.
Awesome long ski run, got last lift up and went down the grands envers variation and all the way to Chamonix. Well worth doing. Didn't have to work the moves or fall over but did ask for information so maybe a beta flash.....
