A short trip this afternoon to the 1750 meter summit of the Dome de Pravouta behind the house.

Possible to ski from 1200 meters. About 30cm of fresh snow but a lot of wind so there were accumulations of 50 to 100cm in places. Wind from West to North-West. Some slabs on SE faces close to the ridge but no fragile layer so not particularly worrying here.

Due to the wind the snow was much better in the trees

Very cold with the wind.
