Spring is sprung!
Sounds like we're all getting Spring like weather!
Here in Serre Che it's been getting steadliy warmer for the past three to four days and is set to continue.
When it's like this powder can be hard to find, but managed it last Friday when we ski toured above the Col du Lautaret on some North facing slopes.
As we came back down the snow kiters were out making the most of the breeze, and the "hang time" was staggering.

With the warm weather of Friday and yesterday it's more ski touring to ski spring snow which can be as good as powder.
This was yesterday, ski tour with the dogs.

Have put some RRD Kites (almost new 2014) plus V6 bar and lines in the Ads section here.

Negotiating The Seas....With winter conditions firmly in place, here is my top tip to minimise the time you spend under the water this year. Bending your legs whilst going over the waves is often overlooked. See your legs as suspension at all times.More
