Warm conditions have brought full spring conditions to the Chamonix valley this week
Spring touring season is well and truly upon us, with warm temperatures bringing a daily melt-thaw snow cycle and shorts & flipflops being worn around town.
We made a decision on Tuesday to tour to something south-facing to hopefully time it just right for some softened snow on the descent. We decided on the Dent de Fenestral near Finhaut & Emosson in the end, joined by a few old friends visiting town this week it made for a very fun day.
