I had not planned to write any post blogs during my project to climb all of the 4000m peaks of the Alps. I thought we would be busy skinning up, skiing down, checking maps, itinerary and weather. But things are going a different way. We did our first summit, the Gran Paradiso (Italy) together with Colin Haley (Alpinist) and Anthony Bonello (Film maker) on the 3rd of March and since then it’s dumping. Winter is here and this morning I shovelled more snow in one morning than I did in December, January and February reunited. It’s both great and a bummer. Great because I love snow and the mountains needed snow. And a bummer because I want to keep moving and climb more summits and this snow put us on hold.
The last 3 days had been a bit stressful with the weather, making plans and then changing plans with all the things behind that. Phone calls to collect infos on conditions, POI and tracks for the GPS, huts booking and then cancellations, etc etc… But this morning I woke up serene and relaxed. I manage to let go something in my minds and to accept we probably won’t be able to do anything this week. Too much snow. Too much wind. Too dangerous. And not much I could do about all this.
Since winter is here for real, lets go skiing powder and keep an eye on the weather.
The next go is maybe not that far away!
