Sunny Sunday in the Val Ferret

Despite the lack of snow over the past 6 weeks the blue skies have provided us with the most stunning weather for snowshoeing, walking and nordic skiing. With the continued stable sunny weather we headed to the Italian Val Ferret, parked at Entreves and took the Navetta to Planpincieux to start our trek.

We headed along the pedestrian track running along the valley bottom next to the nordic ski piste in just over an hour we were enjoying our first coffee of the day at Lavachey.

Beyond Lavachey we join the road (no vehicular access in winter due to the snow) for a short while and climb up towards Arnurva the head of the Val Ferret, below the Refugio Elna and the Col du Ferret.

A welcome lunch stop in the sun we enjoyed unseasonal temperatures of 11 degrees!

We made our way back to Lavachey via the same route and back along the valley bottom to our start point at Planpincieux. 

What a fabulous day, truly stunning in every way... who needs fresh snow!
