Weekly Photo: Tignes 2009

We make a return to the Weekly Photo following our recent trip.

The snow has begun to fall in the Alps and we’ve booked our first winter trip of the season returning to Tignes in March.

This photo is of the Aiguille Percée which loosly translates as ‘The Eye of the Needle’. It is a beautiful rock formation caused by wind erosion. The locals believe in ten years it will have completely eroded away.

After a good snowfall there’s a hairy hike up through the Eye that leads to stunning views and a brilliant off-piste run on the other side.

Winter: God’s season.
