A Via Ferrata is a protected climbing route, the name means “iron road” in Italian. Modern Via Ferratas have a steel cable running along the route which is fixed to the rock every 3 to 10 metres. Climbers can secure themselves to the cable using via ferrata kit, limiting any fall, and use the cable as an aid to climbing. Other aids to climbing such as iron rungs, pegs, carved steps, ladders and bridges may be located on the course and allow potentially dangerous routes to be undertaken with less risk than unprotected scrambling or climbing and without the need for climbing ropes. Relatively inexperienced climbers can enjoy the dramatic positions and access difficult peaks that would otherwise be only accessible to serious mountaineers. Some equipment is required (climbing harness and via ferrata kit comprising of a energy absorbing lanyard with 2 carabiners, plus a helmet) and a good head for heights is essential.

Both France & the Italian Dolomites have had heavy snow over the last few days & our resort staff are reporting great conditions.
Espace Killy have opened up the link between Val Claret & val d’Isere as well as parts of Tignes Le Lac. It is expected that most of the area will be open by the weekend or soon after.
Cold temperatures and heavy autumn snowfall in Tignes mean that conditions are fantastic up on the Grand Mott glacier. The picure below was taken on Chalet Hotel Les Melezes terrace on Sunday morning.

With under 2 weeks to go until we open at Chalet Hotel Les Melezes in Tignes for Ski & Board Camp 2012 www.skiandboardcamp.com it’s looking like the winter is kicking off to a good start. This picture, courtesy of the Tignes Tourist Office, shows 30cm of fresh snow late last week and more forecast for later this week.
The rotten weather we’ve been suffering in Europe this spring has been great news for summer snow on glaciers in the Alps. The Grand Motte glacier in Tignes is set to open on Saturday 23rd June & it looks like some excellent conditions are waiting up there.
