Vallee Blanche for Christmas
Thursday December 25, 2008 - Email this article to a friend

Father, son and daughter head down the run above Chamonix. They are not just any old family and didn't take any old route.

They are mountain guide Nick Parks and his son, Archie, and daughter, Tara.  We can't help thinking it must be rather cool to have a mountain guide as a Dad.

Nick runs the guiding company, Mountain Tracks, and is also our resident expert on off piste matters.  He answers question in our Ask PlanetSKI section and has just sent us over the pictures.  Looks pretty good to us.

The photos were taken on the Mer du Glace and Envers du Plan glaciers above Chamonix earlier this week.

"It was  a quick afternoon descent from the Aiguille du Midi and there was just myself, son and daughter and the high mountains," Nick tells us. "A perfect way to start Christmas".

In Ask PlanetSKi he was answering a question about the snow cover on the glaciers and at high altitude.
