Chamonix, France

Rolled the Dice and was looking for early season powder.  The tales I have heard over the years about pre season in France still delivered.  Maybe it wasn’t waist deep to the valley floor, but the lift system adds such vertical to the mountain that its hard to beat, regardless of soft or firm snow.  Enjoy the pics.

First run of the fear.  So thin and rocky, snow was like sand.  Photo by Davide Capozzi, check out their site snowhow.it  they ride the steeps.

Mandatory air for Dave, as far as I know the roughness is all made from the handful of times we skied and jumped.  Private.
