22ND OF MARCH 2015 – LONG RUN UNDER THE SNOW FOR THE 1ST SUNDAY OF SPRING

Morgex (Aosta Valley), 10.00 am – off we go for a long run of 20km on a cloudy Sunday morning. After few kilometers on the trail tracks that climbs to “The Veulotta” first and ends up to the Pascal Bivouac, it starts snowing. Small snowflakes fall and quickly cover the path. The temperature is mild, we climb with a high intensity pushing hard for over 1.000 mt D+ until we rich the Park Modzoun Valley (2.100 mt D+). Crossing over is too risky! We take few seconds to contemplate the magical landscape, drink a sip of water at the icy fountain and then down we go along the descent that puts a strain on our ability to maintain balance. Last stage is La Salle and return to complete our training in safety.
