Better Than Expected

Jonny: Untouched shallow powder at the end of the Cornu ridge

Location: Brevent/Flegere
Snow: 20cm powder
Weather: Hazy cloud

No big expectations today but it was a fun one.  Jonny and his pals are in town for a well-timed couple of weeks’ riding and we headed up Brevent early to check things out.  The top bin wasn’t open to skiers but there was still plenty of fun terrain to play on especially off the Cornu ridge where we found one safe couloir still with untouched snow for a quick descent.  Over on Flegere it was a similar story with the best skiing found by traversing hard past the bottom of Floria (still not running) to play in the gullies which were holding deeper snow than elsewhere.
