Les Marecottes - Vallon de Van...

I joined Simon Abrahams today along with Mike, Ben, Stu, Jim and Dan for a week of touring and off piste skiing.

With a fairly flexible plan for the week, the aim is to do some day itineraries followed by a mini tour with some overnights in huts.  First up was a visit to Les Marecottes where we crossed La Golette via some steep skinning followed by some booting (Mike pictured).

Some good snow on the north facing side took us down to Lac de Salanfe and a descent of the Vallon de Van.  Fairly warm temperatures today despite the high cloud...
