Up to Verbier

In tropical heat we managed to find enough snow to snowshoe from Le Châble up to Verbier! Not only a major work-out, but a great day to work on our tans!
Fabulous fun in the sun.

Sunny Verbier

Les Combins

Verbier's pride and joy - the Massif des Combins which culminates at the giddy glacial height of 4314 meters.
This is our equivalent of Chamonix's Mont Blanc & Zermatt's Matterhorn.

Premières traces en raquettes

La poudreuse était au rendez-vous! On était les seuls à s'aventurer à faire la trace dans les 40cm de neige fraiche tombée pendant la nuit! Youhouhou!
Une première pour moi avec mes raquettes aux pieds d'une fille de 12ans! Un succès!

Raquettes à neige sur Verbier

Une superbe matinée avec des traces d'écureuils, lièvres variables et chevreuils partout, combiné avec le chant d'une pie! Le paradis quoi!

Le Chable to Verbier

Phew, made it!
Am amazed by the amount of snow, this is the first time in 10 years this has been possible!

This is THE BEST!
Just got new skis & it keeps dumping! Yeeehaw!
Verbier's South slopes have twice the amount of snow they normally have.

Mother Nature

  • Winter has been harsh this year for the wild animals. Remains of a chamois which probably fell from a cliff above and was then eaten by the famished critters around. What a sight!

    Snowshoe Bourg St. Pierre

    Right near Italia we had to go check if the snow was falling and the gale winds keeping it all out of Verbier. And it was!
    How did Napoleon get through here back in 1800?!

    The sun was shining in Verbier, even though it was snowing everywhere else in Switzerland!
