Haute Maurienne Backcountry Skiing 2018

Another fun week on our annual pilgrimage Off Piste Skiing in the Haute Maurienne – great to see Arthur, Bob ad Mike again, with friends Phil and Paul, plus Pete who was new to the game and fitted in really well – thanks for a fun week guys!

Conditions were better than I’d expected, with plenty of good powder to be had straight off the lifts, or with a minimum of skinning.  During the week we visited La Norma, Bonneval, Termignon and Val Cenis – finding good powder each day, including some new descents that I’ve had my eye on for a while and proved to be well worth while.  This year we stayed at the Hotel St Charles for a change, which was a great spot and very convenient right next to the pistes – if you haven’t tried Off Piste Skiing in the Haute Maurienne yet, then give it a try – it’s one of the best kept secrets in the Western Alps!
