After a difficult search operation lasting all night the bodies of the six missing ski tourers have been found under an avalanche in the Ceillac area of the Hautes-Alpes.The group were supposed to return in the early afternoon after a ski tour in the Bachas valley.
Low cloud was clagging up the valley but a quick check of the les 7 Laux webcams revealed sun from somewhere around 1800 meters. I spoke to Mike who'd wanted to go to the Belle Etoile. I looked at the Avy bulletin.
