Record snowfalls in the Alps

Well we had a dry autumn, but the last two weeks has more than made up for that – with 3.25m of snowfall at the Grands Montets and counting…  Early season powder conditions understandably have been excellent, though not with out a significant number of days of high avalanche risk to contend with.

Thank’s to Bairdy for the pic – from the British Mountain Guides CPD day in Les Houches this weekend – appropriately enough, it was about managing avalanche risk!  To quote – “getting a bunch of guides to slow down for a photo is not easy!”
