Dear followers!

You will be soon able to follow me on my new project, starting on 1st September 2015.

I will cross again this wonderfull country but in a different way and with a new purpose.

Discover this new exiting adventure here:



This year is not very charitable in snow. Nevertheless, last week was very generous and fresh powder snow is covering the forest and the summits with a 2 meters thickness coat. 

For the past 5 years, I've been spending the winter season snowboarding and snow-shoeing in Courchevel.
This season and the previous, I have started to train myself to sleep outside in the cold, at low temperature such as -15°C.

So far, I only have a +5°C rated sleeping bag and don't have a 4 seasons tent. So to protect myself from snow falls and cold, I build a shelter made of branches and packed snow. A pad on the ground to protect from the lost of heat by conduction is more than enough to receive my sleeping bag over it, granting me peaceful nights.

The 4 ski resorts of Courchevel are comprised between 1550 and 1850 meters, but ski pistes and tracks can take you up to an altitude of 3500 meters. Since walking tracks are mostly open in summer, I can enjoy them covered by immaculate deep snow.
