View of Pont in Valsavrenche
 
Looking down at Pont in Valsavarenche where we had left the car.

Pont is now a ski station in the Valsavarenche valley. There is only one ski lift and two pistes, but there are ski trails along Valsavarenche between the villages of Pont, Creton, Degios and Rovenaud. It is not the sort of ski resort that would attract foreign visitors who would expect many more pistes than available here, but if one was local it would be a pleasant place to ski at the weekend.

Why didn't I ever move to the Aosta valley? Climbing and walking in the Alps, skiing close to hand, what more could you ask?
