One of those days... Rick is a living topo of the ski touring potential in the Chamonix valley. He has done every possible tour. We drove about 4 times around the main roundabout in Chamonix unable to make a decision. The snow here would definitely provide the best skiing.

But.... a bit of reconnaissance somewhere else would be good too. As we drove down towards the Chablais, the thick band of clouds was really not inviting. So we changed plans and headed toward the Col de La Colombière.

We drove up to 1400 m and there was no snow! Great! That was certainly a reconnaissance, a 2 hour car journey to confirm that the only good snow you can find is up high. Stay in Cham. It is still great!
