Leysin

Well it feels like summer here in the Alps, with midday temperatures in Leysin a crazy 34 degrees on the balcony & in the sun!

Leysin hasn't seen any reasonable amount of snow since early January & looking at the forecast only flurries are predicted into the middle of next week.

The weather besides the lack of snow and warm temps affecting the ice has been amazing, crystal clear skies with fantastic views across the Rhone Valley.


This is the view across the Rhone Valley from the top of Leysin near to the Grand Chalet

I'm climbing over in Cogne again this week where they have more snow, colder overnight temperatures and still some great ice to climb at a higher altitude.
