      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

[TR] Vanoise Alps, Savoie, France - Glacier Tour, southern loop 6/26/2016

Trip: Vanoise Alps, Savoie, France - Glacier Tour, southern loop


Date: 6/26/2016


Trip Report:

My husband Jon and I are in Europe for two months, during which we will climb in the Alps and sight-see or relax in mountain villages during rest periods. Our first trip was a beautiful loop in the Vanoise Alps of France, that was mostly trail hiking with some mountaineering side trips. It was a great intro to the European hut system and spending 5 days at 7000-10,000 feet was perfect acclimatization for our upcoming climb of Mont Blanc.


I wanted to post a full TR here, but I am at a campground whose wifi is slow and I couldn't upload the pictures to CC.com. Sorry about that! When I have better Internet I'll try to post them here. For now, here is a link to my blog.




Gear Notes:

No camping equipment or food required. The huts do it all for 50-60 Euro per person per day.


Approach Notes:

Twisty French roads led us to our starting point in Pralagnon-la-Vanoise.
