Rockin' Run


Snowpack seems pretty stable on the well travelled (skier compacted) off piste runs like this (see video) in much of the N French Alps. There's been some natural and accidental activity away from the well travelled classics above 2200 m on steep slopes around ridges especially near the Italian border areas. Be aware, when touring, of this change in snowpack character from well skied/compacted runs to less skied ones.
