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 :-)

@kitenski, my mates went down something similar. They were full of it when we met up again.

To get up there is about 1500m of skinning.

@Tristero,

I'm not familiar with Arête à Jacotte even referring to IGN map. But certainly laps of Chalance, The Pierre Grosse itinerary which is now a black or various pistes are possible. There are a couple of itineraries now pistes from Fee too which are now more attractive.


The name refers to the ridge above skiers right once you have left Chalance. You reach it by going round Roche Mantel. You've probably been there if you like to go off piste. If you hold the ridge, you can reach the village of Cuculet. I got the name from the old Vamos guide-book by Ginet/Villaret.

@Tristero, I know where you mean but no I haven't been down that. Not in the winter anyway. I've hiked it in the summer.

Decided to skin up as far as I could this morning. Another bright sunny day. Cracked on pretty well and managed to get up to 2900m after 1350m of climbing. Pretty cold up there though. Photo from my finishing point, you can see the glacier resto at 3200m ahead. It looked much closer in real life but would have taken a fair while longer to reach. Decided to ski back and have a pint at the Patachon at 2200m.

Hiking on and below Vallée Blanche yesterday. Snow has gone in many places and spring is springing in the mountains. Saw my first marmotte of 2021 but he quickly disappeared. Although we had a very small fall of snow last night.

Thank for all the kind words from those who have appreciated my updates. Some who I have been lucky enough to meet here. However as the owner has informed me that my "air of entitlement is beyond compare." I guess that entitles me to fúck off.

Thanks Colin for very informative and non-self centred comments. Hope to get to ski with you again.

As one of those fortunate to have had a (planned) meet up with Colin, a drink and a lovely morning’s skiing (although I failed to keep up with him Madeye-Smiley ), I was grateful for his time, company and knowledge. No idea who said what, but hope @Claude B, returns. His posts and great photos have provided some vicarious ski-fixes in these barren times.
