hikin’ in the wind.
A few weeks ago we were in Vétan for the Vétan Classic, a splitboard/backcountry meeting now at its eleventh edition. The day before the race we hiked to the refuge Fallère (with a little help from Domingo). Going up we found strong wind conditions. Once we reached the refuge Bubba and Ciccio walked for 45 minutes to ride a couloir next to it. In the meantime fog and wind increased. In particular, the wind, so strong that I could not even look into the viewfinder of the camera! After a quick lunch we started the descent. The snow was quite windy and the return to Vétan gave us a few surprises, thankfully everything went well! Now enjoy some pictures!
