Ski touring La Flegere – ‘Col De Beugeant’ 2807m to ‘Col De L’Encrenaz’ 2579m – 700m ascent.
The recent stable snow and weather conditions have been perfect for getting out ski touring. On Friday this week we decided to head over to the ‘Col De Beugeat’ @ 2807m. The below image shows a couple of people half way up to the main Col, it then heads right and steepens before the final last section and a short and quite exposed rock scramble up to the Col.

After skiing the steep North facing slopes of the Col 50m 40º we headed right to the ‘Col d’Encrenaz’. Look at the below image, you can see the ‘Col d’Encrenaz’ between the two main peaks on the left of the image. After skiing the main chute to about half way, we skied left towards some fantastic rolling wide slopes before dropping into another steep chute towards the bottom. Finally traversing through the trees towards Le Buet and the train back to Chamonix. All in all a fun day out in the Aiguilles Rouges!
