In case you haven't heard both BCA, Snowpulse and Mammut have recalls out for their airbags. In the case of BCA the recall affects Float airbags shipped from 2011 to 2013. For Mammut and Snowpulse it is all airbags from 2011 to 2013.
Change of programme to skating on the Chemin de l'Herse. The ski resort of St Hilaire closed yesterday and even if it wasn't that busy it was even lonelier on the pistes today. A lot of guys playing soldiers in the ruins of the Sanatoriums with their very realistic softair guns, it looked like the Crimea.

This short but relatively steep couloir can be used as an introduction to steep skiing. It also offers access into the Combe des Roches for a longer tour. The slopes under the Col du Montfosse keep powder snow better than the east slopes of the Breche de la Passoire but it is possible to join the climbing trail directly via this gentle east facing valley without the climb to the Montfosse.
