French Haig Robertson


Completed FHR. One of several groups. Good skin track in place and good snow cover throughout. Minus 3 at 7:00 am at trailhead. Thin cloud cover to top of French glacier kept snow in good shape. Snow rapidly deteriorated once clouds cleared. We skinned up to top of Robertson Col. Ski crampons useful here. Slight crust on the ski down but generally good skiing.

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Hard. Weather conditions were: Sunny, Warm. We rode: Alpine slopes, Mellow slopes. We avoided: Convex slopes. Riding quality was ok.
