Skinning to Vals

Before Saturday night dinner, Emily, Sam, Jack and I went skiing up The Ramp.

Skiing uphill is pretty hard work. Emily and I went to Vals with her kite. The hope was that we would be able to do a bit of kite skiing once we arrived. Unfortunately though, there was no wind up there at all. Jack and Sam decided to ski the entire flag line, about 17 km in total. The flag line delineates the safe travel area which is easily reachable from base.

It still felt like quite an achievement to skin to Vals and back, nearly 8 km and the furthest I’ve ever been on skis. I also managed to ski down The Ramp which was fun.
