Cabane Mont Fort

We finally took advantage of the pass we have at Verbier and spent a couple days at the Cabane de Mont Fort, The cabane lies on the slopes of Verbier at an altitude of 2457m.  It is a regular stop for those doing the famous “Haute Route” ski tour from Chamonix to Zermatt. We had the luxury of having a family room.

The boys were ecstatic to have bunk beds. This was a perfect altitude for sleeping and training at as I prepped for the last races of the season, the Mezzalama. I took advantage of the great weather, set my alarm with the “haute routers” and set off  with my skis and skins to catch the morning sunrise

I returned back with plenty of time for breakfast back at the cabin.

and  then spend the days skiing the slopes with the boys.

Not a bad day to miss school!

I had my eye on a couloir just above the hut. The next morning I set off and had a nice little ski down and then once again was back for breakfast.
