One tiny little section in the immense Mt Blanc Massif deserves special mention, in my opinion. It's a small but concentrated zone of consistently steep northeast faces above the Argentiere glacier. The vast majority of the backcountry skiing in this region is still unfamiliar to me, but I look forward to getting to know this area much better. It is a veritable playground for adventurous adults.
Earlier this winter I climbed the NE Face with Roch Malnuit, and we then launched our paragliders from the top and flew all the way back to town in 20 minutes - a descent that takes most climbers half of a day. More recently, I skied a bit in the same zone and every step up, like every turn down, was stellar.
