Summer 2015

After the relatively snowless winter the
summer season 2015 started without too many glitches. The trails were snow free
by late June and the only thing we had to worry about was the heat! This region
of the Alps saw unprecedented temperatures as The Chamonix valley saw excesses
of 30 degrees. In all my time living in this area I have never know it that
hot, it was like being on the Mediterranean coast!

This was fabulous for views and dry days in
the mountains but did make the ascents very tough for everyone. This balmy
weather lasted all the way until the end of July with temperatures returning to
the norm for the start of August.

August and September went well and our first
guided trek on the Traverse of the Grand Paradiso was a success with an optional
ascent of the Gran Paradiso 4020m summit at the end of the trek (see specific

We once again had some fabulous groups &
met some great folk from all over the globe.

Thanks also to our trusty guides Joy, Ali,
Duncan, Kelvyn, Vicky, Alex & Gary who did an excellent job.
