Powder

Well that was it, we had enough of the Chamonix heatwave and went to visit friends in Vallouise near Briancon. On arrival at about midnight the it snowed, not just a bit but about 2ft of the most perfect powder which was great as we were here to snowboard.

We stayed with Giles Cornagh who i was in Madagascar with. He runs an ace B&B and is an excellent chef and climber and will be able to point you in the right direction for all sports in the valley, and then make your dinner when you get home. Contact Giles
