After the relatively snowless winter the summer season 2015 started without too many glitches. The trails were snow free by late June and the only thing we had to worry about was the heat! This region of the Alps saw unprecedented temperatures as The Chamonix valley saw excesses of 30 degrees. In all my time living in this area I have never know it that hot, it was like being on the Mediterranean coast!

This was fabulous for views and dry days in the mountains but did make the ascents very tough for everyone. This balmy weather lasted all the way until the end of July with temperatures returning to the norm for the start of August.

August and September went well and our first guided trek on the Traverse of the Grand Paradiso was a success with an optional ascent of the Gran Paradiso 4020m summit at the end of the trek (see specific blog).

We once again had some fabulous groups & met some great folk from all over the globe.

Thanks also to our trusty guides Joy, Ali, Duncan, Kelvyn, Vicky, Alex & Gary who did an excellent job.
