April snowshoeing…

It’s nearly the end of April, and we’re still snowshoeing. Here is one of our snowshoe guides in front of the Drus, in a photo taken yesterday. The Chamonix valley temperatures are in the low 20’s ยฐC, yet above 2000m the snow is still good. After walking up to the Signal Forbes, where you get a great view down onto the Mer de Glace, we walked down to Chamonix, a descent of over 1300m. We were doing a photoshoot for GV Snowshoes, who started sponsoring Icicle Guides this season, and you can see some of the pictures at http://picasaweb.google.com/IcicleUK/GVSnowshoes
