Winter Alpine Meet 2018

And so it starts – WAM’18:   We have 19 members and guest and more snow than we have ever had on the meet during the past 12 years that the club has been running its Winter Alpine Meet.   We also have the youngest guest to ever attend a RC winter alpine meet – Josh Nasse.  That will please the New Members’ Secretary 🙂

On Monday Gus and I reconnoitred the Tete de la Sallaz (2026m) as a possible route to the Pointe d’Areu (2462m). From the little know ski resort of Romme above Cluses we were able to use the ski tow for the princely sum of 2 euros!  That saved 25 minutes of up hill.
