Away from the Crowd... is the Ultimate goal!

A great way to avoid the crowd on the Vallée Blanche is to ski the Vallée Noire, which is the left hand-side bank as you are skiing down.

It is usually skied by parties coming down from the Italian side.

A very scenic descent, with a full view on all of the unbelievable lines skiers have dared to take...

We finished early enough to get to the Grands Montets and catch a top lift.

Perfect timing, We were on our own until this group came racing by in their big fat skis, making hardly any turns. I have to say, I am tempted to try fat skis...

To save time we used my secret parking spot. Unfortunately it meant that we had to ski the Pierre à Ric at its peaks which essentially defeated my ultimate goal of the day.
