Back at the GM .. Days 65 & 66

12th March and the need to float in the GM fluff is overwhelming. 

Adrian showed up early to scrounge coffee and offer lifts so braving the snowy conditions we we off in search of some soft stuff with a mission to get to the top.

As usual it didn’t disappoint, no-one could see a thing but hey we knew which way was down so …… Board meeting assembled and off we go.

Even a couple of pics of me and the new poles .. they look great in the snow .. thanks to Adrian.

An afternoon appearance of blue sky made for some great Italian Bowl ridge shots.

And the long trees down to the Retour Pendent didn’t disappoint .. just about doable before the soft fluff turned to warm heavy sludge and no one fell off a cliff .. bonus!

Pictures courtesy of Adrian, he did a great job considering I am not a very co-operative subject through the trees, To busy trying not to hit something to go where I was told. I now have much better appreciation for my “willing” photography subjects.

March 13th and Adrian took his other friends down the Vallee Blanche while we headed back to the GM for Sharon & Keith’s last day with us.

A very pretty first run of the day down the home run …
