Chabot Refuge and back to the road side

Excessive amounts of snow, poor visibility and high winds  with heavy drifting and the formation of wind slab prevented us from going much higher above the hut so by 9,30 pm we heading back down to the road side.

Happy to be back at the road side. There were some big avalanches  which took trees and debris right across the road but they had just been cleared  by  a massive digger so we got back home to Chamonix eventually.
