Well, it's been a crazy few days in Les Arcs! The end of last week saw a snowstorm which has deposited more white stuff in a few days than we had all of last season. This is a great start but has brought with it a fair amount of chaos as well. The roads up to the higher resorts have been closed at times for avalanche blasting and high winds and there have been a few accidents too.

The snow is finally here - it took a while to arrive, a fair amount of snow dancing - and most probably some serious re-arranging of the jet stream some five miles above our heads. After 6-7 weeks of scraping around on ice in the morning and slush in the afternoon, everyone has been out playing in the 30-40cm of powder on offer and off of a sudden, areas that were previously inaccessible have become open game, so my friend, Filip & I decided to do some exploring.
