Springtime in the Alps

Springtime in the Alps

It’s springtime in the Alps! The birds are singing away, we’ve had another week of beautiful sunny weather and there is still great snowshoeing to be done.

Last Sunday my friends Angie and Sylvain came out to enjoy the fine views from the delightful snowshoe summit of the Tete de Sallaz, about fifty minutes drive from Chamonix. We were able to put our snowshoes on next to the car and had lovely conditions all the way to the top.
