Haut Route

Hello from Bourg St Pierre, We have been here for two days ( enjoying the sking at Verbier)hoping to go up to the Valsorey Mountain Hut. But today we have to go to Arolla and then into the Dix Hut where we have been able to get room to stay. From there we will go over the Pigne D Arolla down to thehVignette hut and then our plan for the next day to Zermatt. All is good although the weather has been awful, but excellent snow giving wonderful sking when one can see through the mist.
The forecast is to improve and we are quite confident that we should reach Zermatt on Friday.
Our trip from Chamonix has been pretty ace and exciting, we stayed at the Argentier refuge and then went on to the Trient hut the follwing day to overnight, but the forecast was bad so we enjoyed Rosti and coffee from Terry the hut guardian and then descended in the late afternoon to Champex, the snow was superb.
