Had huge storms and torrential rain here last couple of days, due to continue but worst over. Not much fun in resort but freezing level is pretty low, less than 2000m. Good news for summer skiing which starts in 6 weeks (earlier for race teams).

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

I went for a hike up to the top of Vallée Blanche yesterday, 2100m. Could clearly see that it's still possible to ski down Crête, this was confirmed by friends who drove up there, skinned up to the glacier and skied back down. Lovely warm sunny day same again today.

Bit of a hike here yesterday, 14km/700m. Lovely but my knees are suffering today.






Spent the weekend a bit further afield in Annecy at a friends. Really busy up there. Lake Saturday​ and a rando Sunday with 15 of her family and friends followed by the most enormous 5 course lunch in a mountains resto.

@Claude B, heads up for you.

As I was riding yesterday saw various signs advising of road closures for next Sat for the Criterium du Dauphine - and on checking the route will have to make the trip over as they're going to be climbing up to ADH but via the Sarenne.

Should be really good (weather allowing) as will not be too rammed, especially with feckin camper vans as they will not be allowed up there.

@Claude B, not too sure where I'm going to watch the stage that finishes here, might go up to the Galibier on the MTB on the old trail as I can then avoid the roads. And then the next day the Izoard will be rammed, and that might be the stage to watch on TV.

I'm doing the Etape anyway so will have had my fill of the Izoard as I'll probably be doing a couple of training rides up it rolling eyes

@Weathercam, My mate worked for Cav's team last year and has VIP tickets for the finish in Monetier and start in Briancon the next day. Won't see them struggling up the climbs but mingling with them should be cool 😁

@Claude B, finish is here in La Salle, Villeneuve, opposite the Frejus Gondola and Frejus Hotel.

Evidently we're hosting a party afterwards on our terrace rolling eyes

@BigSouthernJesse, No problem I'll start a 2017/18 thread ready for Toussaint. Open then for 10 days prior to the winter season starting on 2nd December.

Just a taste of the sort of crazy things done here in summer. I watch these guys from my balcony, madness 😯

Very wet and cold in resort yesterday, torrential rain for much of the afternoon. Obviously snowing higher and once the cloud cleared .... Very Happy


The magnificent Muzelle just before sunset.


And this morning looking towards Diable, snowline about 2150m at a guess.

Both shots taken from my balcony, the view's not too shabby Very Happy

Was talking to a guy last night who'd been working on the glacier this week. He said that it was already looking much healthier and yesterday's snow would have helped even more. Snow cannons are being put up there and will start running in early October in time for opening again for 10 days at Toussaint.

Heavy rain during the night which woke me as it hammered on the roof. As it became light could see it was snow above about 2100m. Quite a bit more due this week.
