Plan de l'Aiguille and Courmayeur Off Piste...

I have spent the last couple of days with Bruce Goodlad doing some off piste runs in Chamonix and Courmayeur.

Yesterday, we did a couple of runs from the Plan de l'Aiguille: The Combe des Glaciers and the Pre du Rocher which gave some great snow high up followed by some tree combat.

Today, the weather was a little overcast with fresh snow in Chamonix so we headed through the tunnel, in search of sun, to Courmayeur.  Here we did a couple of good runs, the first being from the Arp Bubble down to the Col d'Arp followed by a descent into the Val Veni from the Youla Telepherique.  More fresh snow is forecast for Chamonix tomorrow...
