    What did you expect, can you not see the top from your house.

    I can and it looked like there was a shit load of snow up there. That's the reason I went, to see how far I could get. I'll go again next week. This time last year I was getting to 3km.

    Hi Paddy, we're looking forward to our trip out to stay with you from 16-20 May. Planning to do Aubisque, Hautacam, Tourmalet and possibly Luz Ardiden. Hope the snow recedes over the next 25 days. Regards Slapton Wheelers

    They are all must do David. Luz Ardiden is a fantastic climb and the best descent there is. Hautacam is hell. Soulor/Aubisque is spectacular and Col du Tourmalet long and hard but it's history makes it special.

    Thanks, I'll keep an eye on your reports on the snow situation.

Kudos
