Looks like you worked out some excellent timing for a great tour—which I would love to have accomplished.
What route did you take to go over the Dent Parrachee?
My last day of skiing was the W face of the Aiguille de Peclet on Monday, where the weather the night before and during the day were worse than the MeteoFrance—but still it was a fun day. Despite Georges and my skins getting thorough “gummed up” on the climb with warmed fresh snow.
Tuesday I was thinking of skiing Mt Thabor, but when I drove to Valfrejus it was raining. So I checked out the roads up to two other trailheads, and it kept raining at those too. I drove back down to the valley and got a rental bike in the afternoon at Chambery and rode up the Mont du Chat (which turned out to be a much bigger climb than I expected).
I would sign with both hands to have such conditions in May every year!
Myself I was indeed glad to have the glaciers so well covered (like the day we skied Mont Pourri)—and I got out for some nice tours about two-thirds of the days—but still I would have preferred a week of clear nights and sunny days.
