1 June Tour de Mont Blanc (pre-season)

Hiking from Les Houches to Brévent. Very deep snow above 2200 meter. Trail mostly not visible. Brought crampons. Helpful but snowshoes would have been better. Conditions from Brévent summit (ski station) towards Col de Brévent too treacherous. Options: 1) go back towards Les Houches 2) Descend to Planpraz and on down to Chamonix. Went for option 2.

will take a zero day and decide on entering the trail further up the Chamonix valley. @lastcallwildcamping
