Weather +5C at 1300m. Sunny. Inversion layer.


With the fresh snow the conditions on the Charmant Som climb were a lot better than last week. That said the temperature inversion meant it was warm at altitude and there was less snow at 1700 m than at 1300 m. With the warm weather this week it will probably become tricky to ski the route (17C forecast for midweek). Well it is only mid November
