My thoughts and experiences cycling, snowboarding and travelling around the world
Chamonix is the ultimate home for steep big mountain riding. As with most resorts, the best terrain and snow is not normally directly lift accessed, a little bit of effort gives great rewards. In this shot we were splitboarding up on Glacier du Geant. I don’t speak much French but I think that means giant glacier and it is huge, the biggest in France.
Glacier travel is a bit sketchy but after a refresher course earlier this season we felt a bit more comfortable avoiding ice cliffs and hidden crevasses. Letting us concentrate on searching for the perfect line back down.
