near Tortin, Canton du Valais (Swiss Confederation)

The original idea was Rosablanche (3336 m), but reaching the glacier area at about 3000 m I got lured by two local freeskiers. They said they know where the powder is still perfect, even though it was about 1PM and the sun baked like crazy. They really knew. Moreover, the slope was completely safe. I started tracking two hours after starting from Siviez, so about 500 meters of altitude and 4 km of distance are missing.

Cieľom mal byť vrchol Rosablanche (3336 m), ale na ľadovci v cca 3000 m ma zlákali dvaja miestni freeskieri, že vedia, kde je ešte perfektný prašan, hoci bola asi jedna hodina a slnko pieklo ako šialené. Fakt taký svah našli, navyše úplne bezpečný. Trackovanie som zapol až dve hodiny po štarte zo Siviezu, takže smerom nahor chýba cca 500 výškových metrov a také 4 km.
