13:32 Col

14:11 On Pas du Lac lift heading for 1650 - they're getting tired, not sure of what lift they're on...

14:40 Chapelets

14:52 Prameruel

15:10 Tovets - the 14 check points completed, just the dash back to the pub (before Happy Hour!)

15:30 Ski Lodge - Finished! Time for a well earned beer...


The only "live" pic we received. Possibly on Pas du Lac gondola out of Mottaret up to the Saulire summit.

This is one of the few decent length breaks where you can sit down with the skis off!

Looking surprisingly well though... - knew they should have done Mont Vallon as well!
