Mail for help.Help!!

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 :-)

Shark Attack - the perils of pre season skiing

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Some great powder yesterday above the Col du Lautaret, climbing up to the Galibier road ( https://www.strava.com/activities/2852219305 ) and then climbing up to the Crête de Côte Plaine with stunning views of La Meije and the Girosse glacier down to La Grave.

I was maybe skiing too fast and did not spot the obvious fin Laughing

Big hole to the base, but luckily not near the edge, and skis are my rock hoppers Laughing

@Weathercam, I approve that you did not swear. It looked good until the shark got you.

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

I think a little harsh on yourself. Not that obvious, especially when partly covered by spray from a previous turn. Nice to get some turns in this early in November.

Yeah. I've done that in similar conditions. The real risk is not wrecking a ski but face planting hard into a barely covered rock.
Needs prudence.

Is it open early where you are? Or did you have to climb/walk up on foot to be skiing already?

Sorry, missed the bit where you already said you'd climbed up. My mistake!
