Skiing in the Alps, 4 Valleys

The past week I have unfortunately missed the sunshine of Scotland, though skiing in Switzerland was a reasonable substitute.

We were based in Nendaz, which is near Verbier and part of the 4 valleys circuit. We skied a variety of itineraries during the week, with just a bit of uphill rewarding us with fresh snow and quiet slopes. We even found some skis down a steep ravine, after getting drawn in by some nice untracked slopes. It seems a previous skier hadn't coped too well with down climbing (swinging off tree branches) grade 2 ice and their skis were stuck on a small snowy ledge. It made the walk out all worth while.
