Margherita Beria D'Argentina
24 year old Italian skimo racer, Margherita Beria D'Argentina, has been killed with two other skiers on the Italian side of Mont Chaberton. The group were reported missing yesterday and their bodies were found this morning. The other victims were her boyfriend Antonio Lovato Dassetto and high mountain guide Adriano Trombetta. The group were all very experienced ski mountaineers. Last weekend ski instructor, Benoit Tron, was killed nearby on the Ombilic ridge.
Very soft on the road where the sun was hitting the snow. Slow climbing, sticky descending. 12h30 is obviously too late at the moment. Climbing to the Oratoire was a bad plan, better to stick to the nordic area.

From the col de Mouilles follow the road (closed in the winter) towards the Pré Marcel. At the first junction take the left fork then 750 meters take a path to the right that climbs obliquely from the road.
