Today was our staff trip to the Vallee Blanche. It was touch and go as the weather forecasts were conflicting but in the end we went for it. The arrete was fairly nasty as it was very windy but once we got off the top it was fine. There had been a little new snow over night so we were able to ski some powder. And though there was cloud as we drove over this cleared as we got closer to Chamonix, so, all in all, it was a brilliant day. Here is a photo of us at our lunch stop.
