Keeping an eye on the weather and the snow conditions, Tuesday 14th November was a perfect time to leave Tignes and go to Val d’Isere to start our backcountry ski touring hut to hut adventure which began in the Manchet valley. It would also give us a great opportunity to check conditions and the snowpack for the winter coming.
I love my low season time in the mountains as fewer people are around and there are lots of adventures to be had. Ski touring this time of year is a completely different game compared to going ski touring in spring as going ski touring at the beginning of winter takes a lot of preparation and different skill sets. To have a great experience, to be insured and to be safe, you are strongly advised to go with a mountain guide or instructor.
