Ski touring: Cime de Guilie

Second day of ski touring this weekend. This time Anna and I went to the BorĂ©on to climb the Cime de GuiliĂ© (2999 m). Like in Gialorgues, the snow has melted below 1700 m and it’s frozen above, so very good conditions to go up either in ski touring or snowshoes. Perfect weather where we […]
