Woke up with high hopes of an early ride today looked out the window and could not believe how far down the mountain the cloud had rolled. Climbing big Cols was out of the question.

The 2 tickets were given to us in a printed and glossy railways pouch (more wasted paper). When we boarded the bus the tickets were clipped by the driver (in 3 places) then entered by him ...

Last day

A travel blog entry by ianpve

The forecast was correct - sunshine and clear blue skies after three days of poor visibility and high winds! Our plans was to do two peaks in one day. Turns out that was a bit ambitious as, after the snowfall of the previous two days, there was a risk of avalanches which meant the top slopes were out of bounds until the all clear was given. They set off 'cannons' - which are giant pipes dotted over the mountains that ignite gas and ...
