Aiguille des Posettes

L'Aiguille des Posettes above le Tour. 
We where out today and it was the first sunny day after the recent heavy snowfall, Victoria and I headed to Le Tour skinning up through the ski area and branching out left from the first station to the summit in the image above. The ski area was shut on the left side so we had a quiet trip up, there  where quite a few other parties skinning up and others on snow shoes.

Victoria skinning up through the lower trees above le Tour and the Aiguille Rouge on the right 
The final boot up to the summit area 
Great snow on the way down 
The final furlong down the pistes to Le Tour and great views through the Chamonix valley
