Abandoning our plan to head up Aiguilles de Midi, we went to old faithful, Grand Montets to ski, instead of queue. We weren't disappointed and found deep cold snow all over the mountain.
The weather was much clearer than forecast. Friday should be clear as well but with higher temperatures, then the weather will become more unsettled over the weekend. A warm foehn wind will bring some rain, but by Monday a cold front should see us back to winter.
