Petite Aiguille Verte

Overnight rain and plenty of new snow lying to low elevations. Fortunately the weather forecast provided a window of reasonable conditions, allowing a good but wintry ascent of Petite Aiguille Verte. The higher peaks are covered in considerable amounts of new snow, some of which will avalanche, so be very careful with route choice in the next few days. One team we spoke to did retreat from the Grand Paradiso, where an avalanche was triggered just below the summit.
