It was great waking up to blue skies this morning. I decided to head for Les Saisies again as the ridge heading towards Mont Clocher gives stunning views of Mont Blanc, the Beaufortain and as far west as the Chartreuse massif between Chambery and Grenoble. We bumped into a friend from the Albertville CAF (Club Alpin Francais) before we headed off. The going in the deep snow, almost 75cm, was hard work but the contrast of the blue sky with the snow-draped trees made it all worthwhile. Lunch was taken by a little chalet d’alpage that reflected the sun’s heat and we basked ourselves in the December sunshine whilst looking to Mont Blanc’s bulk.
