Antares in Valsavarenche, Gran Paradiso.
Woke up to 30cm of new snow here in Cogne today.....it also looks as though there's been a fair amount of wind blowing the snow around so take care.
La Barme is the place to stay in Valnontey, Cogne.
La Barme's a great family run hotel in the heart of all the ice climbing here in Cogne. The hotel's warm, comfortable and after a long day climbing the ice you return to a super efficient kit drying room, a sauna and then plenty of great food at dinner - what more do you want!

Cogne's also known for it's 'Ski de Fond' with 45km of world class trails which weave up and down all the surrounding valley's. The roundabout when entering Cogne has a great stone sculpture reinforcing this.
