Skiing at Saint Gervais

As I reported earlier in the week, I am out in the Alps at the moment with Paul, Chris and Colin. One of the reasons for this is to allow us to prepare for our upcoming Greenland trip. We spent today at the Saint Gervais ski area looking at essential skills for safe travel in glacial terrain on skis. These included; ski belays, crevasse rescue skills and avalanche search techniques.

The Saint Gervais ski area is massive and has a vast amount of terrain for all abilities of skier. More photos from the last few days of ski touring near Saint Gervais can be seen on the ClimbNow facebook page.

Tomorrow, I am returning to Scotland and will be writing a report on Saturday from the Glencoe area.
