Season end @ Contamine Negri

Great way to end the season with a quick visit to Aiguille du Midi. With the raising temperatures it had to be something quick and not too serious. The Contamine Negri route on the Triangle du Tacul was looking pretty white so I wanted to give it a try. Jeremie Heitz was motivated to join this quick adventure directly from a festival in Nyon. Young guys have some super powers I can't even imagine anymore...I could not even get out of bed after partying and couple hours of sleep..

The face was still showing lots of ice so we decided to climb and ski the direct steep couloir between the ice and rocks. We got really lucky with the conditions and at the end we got the ski this short, but adventurous line with nice spring powder. Thanks Jeremie for a super season end! So this was end of the season, but lets see when the next one starts. Maybe next week or will it be in Autumn?
