Monte Viso Ski Tour 2015

The Monte Viso Ski Tour – here’s the video from last weeks wild and windy circuit of this beautiful corner of the Alps with a super enthusiastic team – Alf…!

This is an excellent, remote ski tour that involves spending a night in an unmanned hut – so one for the fit and dedicated tourer – or on this occasion, a young, fit and very enthusiastic team.  After a days training and prep around the Col de Lauteret near La Grave, we drove across to L’Echalp and skied around the Viso massif in 4 days.

Although we had clear weather the whole time, we also had some very strong winds to contend with – particularly on the first two days – so it was by no means a pushover.  The final long descent back down to L’Echalp was particularly fine – and a new descent for me as well – so a great way to finish the tour.  Thanks again everyone.
