Ski-Alpinism: Aiguille d’Argentière – Glacier du Milieu (Mont Blanc Massif)

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

I’ve been lucky to get on the 1st lift to Grands Montets before it got closed due to strong wind.

It was much quieter on the glacier d’Argentière and glacier du Milieu.

I skied down to Argentière but the snow was as hard as concrete.
Overall: 20 km, +1,500m / -3,515m.
