TWGR [Alpes Grées] Mt Colmet NE

Splitboard outing to North-East face of Mt Colmet in Italy.

We started the ascent from Arpy 1682m. The last snowfall brought 10cm of cold fresh snow at the bottom which makes the ascent in the forest really pleasant. The area of Arpy lake is purely beautiful!

The east-north-east slopes above the lake were covered with 20-30cm of cold powder snow and my friend Benoît made the track. Thanks to the quality of the snow we were able to skin almost to the top of the north-east face of Mt Colmet and we only walked for the last 50-75m of ascent. One of the best run of 2016 season!
