Storm skiing is pretty damn fun. I think some people in Chamonix look out of their window, see the grey skies, snow falling, wind blowing, and decide to have a rest day and wait for the clear skies. Not me. Storm skiing is so good, I almost prefer it to bluebird powder days. The mountains are empty which means popular routes are easily skied and are usually not tracked. We began in Brevent and headed up to ski l’ENSA couloir but had spotted a group in the couloir from the lift. We wanted fresh so gambled and headed to Bellin instead. It was clean. Adam opened up and after an icy entrance we enjoyed powder all the way down to Chamonix. Thanks Adam and Dan for an epic line.
On returning to the valley Adam and I decided to go for another run, this time taking the Montenvers train then skinning up to le Signal, a half an hour ski tour above the station. This run was even better than the first. Another awesome storm day in Chamonix!
