Chamonix to Zermatt Haute Route • April 21-28, 2011

Our last Haute Route of this ski season was the Bourg-St-Pierre/ Plateau du Couloir variation, with Mont Vélan thrown in for good measure. For this trip we were joined by brothers Larry and Mike Sokolsky, their buddy Roy Tsugawa, as well as Amy Caddell of Vermont, and Shaun Guyton of New Zealand.

To see more photos from this trip have a look at our web site, specifically, this page!

Amy dares to violate that age-old rule: "Never lick a glacier!"

 

Early morning light on Mont Vélan.

Sunrise on Mont Blanc as we climb up to the Plateau du Couloir.

 

....the very next day, as we climb over the Col du Portons.

 

Impressive view of the North Face of the Dent d'Hérens as we ski down the Stockji Glacier.

 

Spring is coming to the high country. Time, perhaps, to hang up the skis.
