Probably the last ski mountainnering of 14/15 winter season

A cool day today, was supposed to be heading to the Grand Mulets hut for  a ski up Mont Blanc tomrrow, but the Chamonix weather forecast is bad so we ended up at the Aig du Midi for a few turns and an ascent of the Arete de Laurance with coffee at the Refuge des Cosmiques!
