The Argentiere glacier is really a great place for ski touring, especially with 25cm of fresh snow.

Lucky to be one of the firsts to leave the cable car of the Grands Montets, I enjoyed skiing in the pow down to the glacier at 2,500m.

Then I skied up to the bottom of Col des Courtes, enjoying an amazing day in the mountains.

As I was crossing the shrund, two avalanches fell less than 10 meters away, so I decided to take a few more photos and get back down to Lognan.
