Ski Touring in the Queyras...

I have been Ski Touring for the last week having joined Bruce Goodlad in the Queryas.  This brilliant touring area is close to Briancon and has some great non glacial terrain with amazing views over to the big peaks of the Ecrins as well as Mont Viso to the south.

Joining Bruce, Ian, Ian, John, Dave, Sandra, Matteo in St Veran we started our six day tour via the Refuge de la Blanche and Refuge Agnel, traversing the Tete des Toillies and Le Pain de Sucre before finshing in Abries.

Conditions during the week were unseasonably warm but yielding some good snow conditions.  South facing slopes gave some good spring snow when timed right, while fresh powder still lingered on the shadier north facing aspects...
