Gordon and Alton Swennes skiing in Chamonix • February 16-17, 2012

Gordon and Alton Swennes joined Mark for two days in the Chamonix area. We started with a day of off-piste at the Grands Montets (sorry, no photos from that day) then followed up with the Vallée Blanche.

The obligatory summit photo shot. Mont Blanc in the background.


Descending the ridge from the summit of the Aiguille du Midi. It was a busy day.


This view is of the Géant Icefall from a point almost to the Requin hut.


We stopped for lunch at the Requin hut.
