April 14th-20th 2019, On Backcountry Skis across the Dauphine

Incredible weather luck we had at this year’s Dauphine crossing. Both ascents and descents are steep and demanding. The firn is a must here, because if the snow is too hard, many downhills are almost impossible. Also too much snow is suboptimal; with level 3 (avalanche danger) many of the planned transitions are simply too dangerous. Nevertheless, the Dauphine is worth visiting, and it also allows you one or the other alternative, if you should not reach a hut. The greater was our joy at the end of the tour – we have come through “Inshalla” according to plan and with magnificent weather and fantastic conditions!
