Ski-Alpinism: Domes de Miage – Armancette (Mont Blanc)

Dômes de Miage is a real classic of ski touring of Mont Blanc Massif. Normally done over 2 days with a night in Tré la Tête or Conscrits hut, it can be done in a long day from Le Cugnon.

I started from Le Cugnon (1,180m) and followed the normal route to Tré la Tête hotel, then went down to the glacier of Tré la Tête.
