Skis were put on straight away from the car park and the route is an easy plod up to the Col de la Basse. The views were spectacular over the Mont Blanc massif all the way up to the first col.
We had been warned over the avalanche prone slope to our left as we were climbing up towards the top of Col Rati so we ensured we were way out of the way. The gradient certainly increases as you head from the the Col de la Basse.
