Exposition

From the southwest of the Parc National des Ecrins, you can see the three-thousanders and almost-four-thousanders in its backyard. These mountains account for the immense snowfall that occurs when a flux sud-ouest strikes. Unfortunately most of the slopes are also oriented south, so you have to be quick after a dump. We are in the southern Alps which means that the sun is quite a bit more powerful.

With bad weather

No trees to be found, so on days when it's dumping you order a Ricard, a bag of salted chips, and relax the southern way. By the time that 'la belle montagne' is visible again, you shred your lines.
