The end of the ski season, Le Buet • June 18, 2013
The hot weather of the last few days simply forced us to get up out of the valley. Even in Chamonix, temperatures climbed up over 32 degrees (90 F!) on this, the toastiest day so far this year.
But, oddly enough there was still quite a bit of snow in the mountains, the result of an amazingly fat winter and spring. So, Kathy and Mark made one last tour of the 2013 season, skinning up Le Buet, a peak at the head of the Berard valley, not far from our home.
Le Buet, also known as the "Lady's Mont Blanc", though not particularly steep, is indeed pretty big, and from car to top requires a climb of about 1700 meters (5570 feet).
