Joel On The Col d’Argentière

After searching Brevent and Flegere for something other than heavy spring snow and knowing that there would be nothing left in the resort area of Grand Montets Joel, John and Francesco came to the conclusion touring was their only option if they wanted fresh tracks. They decided on Col d’Argentiere in the Argentiere basin accessed from the Grand Montets top bin by skiing off the back side. There was only the three of them on the slope, cant say that happens often in Chamonix any more.

Check out Joel’s full report and route description here along with more photos.
