A few weeks ago we were in Vétan for the Vétan Classic, a splitboard/backcountry meeting now at its eleventh edition.

The day before the race we hiked to the refuge Fallère (with a little help from Domingo). Going up we found strong wind conditions.
Once we reached the refuge Bubba and Ciccio walked for 45 minutes to ride a couloir next to it.

In the meantime fog and wind increased. In particular, the wind, so strong that I could not even look into the viewfinder of the camera!
After a quick lunch we started the descent. The snow was quite windy and the return to Vétan gave us a few surprises, thankfully everything went well!

Now enjoy some pictures!
