Given the doubtful avalanche conditions, risk 3 on all slope aspects, we opted for safety and the Col de la Vallee Etroit under Mont Brequin. Shallow but passing under some very snow laden slopes in places
about 70cm of fresh has fallen > 2000 meters this week
giving a pretty massive snowpack at altitude, things are less rosy below 1500 meters which has seen a lot of rain.
We finished off with a beer “chez Roger” in la Villette. This bar is run by a 90 year old from his #######. Groups sometimes ski down here from Val Thorens and have a beer while waiting for a tax ride back to resort. As the local guides and monitors about a trip to “chez Roger”.
