The Start Of The Ski Journey Up The Glacier Des Periades From The Vallee Blanche

Skins are put on here in the Salle à Manger at C. 2400m on the Vallee Blanche descent, approached from either the French or Italian side of the Geant Icefall. The latter offering the possibility to remain a little higher before starting the upward journey. The zig zagging skinning track takes the long & sustained ascent left of the picture and leads up and slightly right to the base of the hidden couloir leading to the Breche Puiseux.
