There are endless possibilities of ski touring between Argenti√®re and Le Tour, including the famous 2 and 3 cols. This option is a 20 kilometers loop around the Aiguille du Chardonnet.

We resumed our trail running training but there are still lot of snow above 1600m, so we found a new short Trail around Les Houches.

No matter how many times I have climbed Aiguille d’Argenti√®re, I keep enjoying it. From Les Grands Montets it’s a short and nice ski touring day, from Argenti√®re it’s a long and good training.
