The weather in Chamonix has been terrible over the last few weeks with rain in town everyday, however this means snow up high and the sking has been good when you can see where you are! We went up to ski the rond on the 6th of this month and it had great powder snow on it, Brendan, Tom and I used the west coulior to exit but a large slide had taken most of the snow out of it and there were some tricky sections. We also had a close call with a slide that came out of the couloir just as we were exiting. There are some photos of me Clive took on the rond below.
