I confess that I’ve been extremely lazy recently and I’ve not been out walking very much at all. In my defence there has been a lot of snow, which has led to a lot of avalanche warnings. There are not many routes to choose from at this time of year either, but one that I thought would be well trodden was the track up to Le Salay from La Forclaz.
Looking at the route today, (see below), you would not believe that the Postbus goes up there in the summer. But, then, you can see why it stops in La Forclaz in the winter, especially when you see the state of the tunnel… (In case you are wondering, I ‘crawled’ across the ice on gloved hands and feet!)
