valentine's day at grand montetes

Happy Valentine's Day from Grand Montetes! Last night we joined friends for a great dinner, and rolled out of bed extra early for today's ski adventures. Our friend Jim is in town, with one day available to ski, so the men gathered their downhill gear and caught the telecabine up Grand Montetes, while I made my way up La Trapette, the fitness route. It was a wet morning, climbing up to meet them for a cozy mountain-side lunch, and I was happy for a chance to dry out a bit. 

We all skied down together, and with a few more hours to pass, and better trail conditions,  I decided to make the 700m+ climb again before we rejoined at the base for our beer rewards.
