Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

@Markymark29, the first time i did it i got caught in an avalanche on the way down near the bottom. A wet snow avalanche nearly pushed me over a cliff! When we finally arrived at the little tea shack at the bottom of le Tour we got a round of applause.

@BobinCH, yes.
@Arno, yes.
By the time we realised we needed to exit right rather than left we were close to the schrund and facing the wrong way. A team of three, number one made the turn, number two disappeared down the hole, then my turn. I made it. Number one got a rope quickly to number two and all was well.

Correct. Taken from Bec des Etagnes, which sits above Cabane Tortin


You can see more perspective at the end of this drone video from the Bec des Etagnes

Otherwise you'll just go on seeing the one name:
Another Snowhead I won't name to spare his blushes was skiing the North side with me and fell; slid down and over a small cliff face. He was fine but the rest of the way down the guide was muttering "Why did I bring them down this?"

Idris, do you have one ready? If not I think I probably do.
