Col de Fenestral and Vallon d'Emaney....

I have swapped the Scottish Winter season for some Chamonix skiing this week - joining British Mountain Guide Stuart MacDonald for some Aspirancy work in Italy.

With a day to spare, Neil Johnson and I decided to head out for a quick mini tour.  The village of Finhaut was our destination, just over the col in Switzerland, where we were keen to check out the area.

From Finhaut we made a fairly hefty ascent to the Col de Fenestral, before skiing the north facing slopes of the Dent d'Emaney (pictured) down into the Vallon d'Emaney.  From here a good run down to La Creta and Le Tretien followed...
