Off Piste in Le Tour...

I joined Jonny Baird yesterday for the first day of a Dream Guides Chamonix Backcountry Weekend.

Meeting up at Le Tour we skied a few runs in the back bowls as well as doing some essential transceiver search practice.  From here a descent towards Le Chatelard resulted in a brief skin to the 'Esserts Chair' lift, and an opportunity to coach skinning and kick turn technique.

To finish the day we skinned up to the Col de Balme and skied some fantastic powder into the Swiss village of Trient via Le Nant Noir...
