It shows you the mountain as it looks in real life, and builds in a host of features to help you get the most out of your time in the mountains. From GPS tracking and recording for navigation and stats, to comprehensive info on the best runs, restaurants, and everything else you want to know about. But it really comes into its own for off-piste skiing, with a set of additional tools to help you understand the terrain around you in more depth than ever before, including gradient and aspect mapping, avalanche and crevasse risk zones and detailed info on the best lines. Can you tell us how the two of you met and where the story began? Dave has always been obsessed with maps and mountains and while living in Chamonix in he started thinking about how you could map what you really want to know about the mountains for off-piste skiing. After stewing on it for nearly 10 years that had resolved itself into the idea of creating a very high resolution 3D model which Misha, a successful tech entrepreneur, immediately suggested putting onto a smartphone. It just had that feeling of serendipity…. Can you tell us a little bit more about you as individuals and your love of skiing? I loved it. But what really started me skiing was doing a 6-week sledge-hauling expedition across the island of Spitsbergen in the Arctic in It was really just a mad adventure that I dreamt up with a mate in a pub, but we managed to raise enough sponsorship from Newcastle Brown Ale to go and do it. What followed next was a lifetime of skiing expeditions starting with trips closer to home such as the Haute Route but then longer and more ambitious trips to Slovenia, the Pyrenees, Norway, Pakistan and India. Since then, ski touring really took over from climbing as my main passion.

The route climbs through an eroded section where the path construction has made what 10 years ago seems exposed into a straightforward steep section. This has been rebuilt in recent years, and now has a magnificent new dining area and sun terrace as well as improved facilities.

Here I met up with the group of three I had passed on the first climb, not French at all but more Israelis exploring the range.

They were lawyers, engineers, financiers. Another charming place to stay Day three Another straightforward day, initially continuing the high traverse under the glaciers: with fresh streams coming down from the glaciers above, small lakes and green pastures, this is perhaps one of the most beautiful parts of the trek. All morning is spent approaching the Entre Deax Eaux area, nestled under the m faces of the Grande Casse and Motte.

Absolute beginners: learning to ski in Val Thorens

Probably one of the most impressive crossroads highways in the whole of the Alps, five major routes meet here, all of which are great routes, either exploring high valleys or traversing steep mountains. Next my route climbed to the Col de la Vanoise, a huge and hugely impressive U-shaped region, more a valley than a col. Flowers everywhere, marmots, chamois, the whole alpine shebang.

This has been totally rebuilt, a brand new refuge. We had passed by on our GR5 walk a few years ago and had a morning coffee in a Portakabin, so a brand spanking new refuge was most welcome.

Day four I could have saved some effort here, but I had planned to drop down to Pralognan at m for some supplies and to report in after a few days without mobile signal.

I had declined the pique-nique the night before, so was committed to the m descent into the town. Pralognan was still asleep, more from the early season than the hour ish when I arrived.

The Tour des Glaciers de la Vanoise – where the French go trekking

Still the Sherpa supermarket was open and, refreshed with coffee and cake, it was time to head to bigger hills. I had been studying the map for a couple of days, but I had spotted that I could rejoin a high traverse from the Col de la Vanoise to the next hut, the Refuge de la Vallette, and cross several cols.

The climb to the first, the Grand du Grand Marchet at m, was a good stern test, especially lower down when it used cables and ladders to cross expanses of steep and bare rock.


As expected, just below the top snow and shale made the final m a challenge. But the views of rock, valley and two spectacular waterfalls more than repaid the hard work.

I crossed two more, smaller cols before arriving at the remote Refuge at m. Enough walking to keep you busy for quite some time Day five The guardienne Sylvie had advised staying high as the better route, as against dropping down to the valley less interesting, more climbing, but quicker. The overnight storm left thick clouds which cleared gradually through the morning and I seemed to have the mountain to myself.

It is a religious building built at the beginning of the 18th century that has an architectural style that is typical of churches seen in the Alps.

There you can find cooked meats, cheese, vegetables, fruits, and manufactured products. In short, everything that is specific to the region!

Going for a walk and enjoying the sunshine? Lac Blanc, in the middle of the Aiguilles Rouges mountain chain, is a very beautiful place.

The back part of the lake is snowy, no matter the time of year, at an altitude of 2, meters. Chamonix is organized around the flow of the Arve river. You can stroll along it to have a nice walk. I have notoriously bad balance, I regularly trip over my own feet and sometimes get vertigo standing on a chair — hardly the qualities which make for a ski pro. As 13 of us novices waddle around one after the other, trying to get used to the feeling of having these strange metal sticks strapped to our feet, skiers and snowboarders of all ages whizz past us heading for the slopes.

I look on in awe, feeling utterly ludicrous as I try my hardest to stay upright on one of the flattest surfaces in the whole resort. We are in good hands though. The class is divided and my name is called to join the ever-so-slightly-less-incapable group. The bottom of the snowy bowl in which the resort of Val Thorens is perched provides the perfect nursery slopes for learning, and it is here we spend our first afternoon, ploughing downhill among the kindergarten skiers in their brightly coloured jumpsuits.

Surrounded by dramatic, treeless peaks, the vista is simply stunning. Situated a dizzying 2,m above sea level, Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe.
