Alptitude!

High Hopes in the French Alps

Weather Update

a glimpse of Varan, and fresh snow through the cloud

Weather update… after all the fabulous but still air. We’ve had a couple of days being swamped in grey cloud with almost constant precipitation.

...and a similar glimpse of Col d'Anterne though pretty much the same cloud!

The weather isn’t all bad though, managed to catch a glimpse of the fresh fallen snow on the Fiz, it’s all starting to look quite wintry. Dennis went to Bois du Bouchet to do some ground handling with our client as Plaine Joux launch is covered in snow.

We’ve made fires for the first time this week, as we have been feeling the chill. Improvement is said to be on the way, with only some precipitation in the morning, followed by clearing skies and a return of the sun. This afternoon there were a couple flying, in the minor break in the weather,  apparently it was freezing, maybe time for the winter woolies to make an appearance. We will be out tomorrow anyway so we’ll see what we can glean from the day.
