We are off to Ecrins in a weeks time.  Want to do some routes from the Refuge Glacier Blanc or Ecrins and then do Pelvoux from Pelvoux hut.
Does anyone know what the conditions are like out there at the moment? 

I was in Val d'isere at teh weekend and there was still lots of snow which made it very slow and hard going.

If your french is any good, look for Refuge du Promontoire on Facebook. They give daily updates with pictures and temperatures etc. Obviously they are not on the Pelvoux/Glacier Blanc side of the Ecrins but will give a good idea and allow you to look at how conditions might have evolved over the past weeks and months.

Cheers

Tom, Thanks for that.  My French is fine so I will look at the Promontoire FB page.  Just seen 30 cm of snow yesterday! 

I've also had a look at the Alpineo/Ice Fall FB page and they did a couple of routes on Barre at the weekend but that was before the latest snow.   Hmm, fingers crossed.
