This time I choose to go to the Aosta Valley and make the top Entrelor, 3380m in the Gran Paradiso National Park, northwest Italy. 04 jan 2013 This is one of the best areas in the Alps for freeride and backcountry.
This is a trip that normally do in the spring (March-June) due to the altitude, but two weeks in the area will not snow and the temperatures are highest the norm, so I decided to come here.
The trip requires a great workout, 1700m of vertical drop and 16km of downhill ... The climb was long and in some places also difficult because of the hard windy snow and ice, here the boot Fitwell has behaved very well, conferring stability.
From the top the view is superb overlooking all 4000MT of Valle d'Aosta, Mont Blanc included.
Down a long and excellent, although alone powder in some places, and less exposed by the wind.
