A midsummer ski in Chamonix.

Summer doesn’t mean skiing has to come to an end! There’s still plenty of snow in the high mountains, especially if you’re in Europe (also, South America/New Zealand/Australia are all skiing right now). David Webster aka ChamonixSkiBum as his , is still skiing plenty in Chamonix. Specifically, just a few days ago, he skied off the Aiguille du Midi.

Imagine being one of those poor sucker hikers, waiting in line to get to the top of the mountain or to descend back to warmth, only to see a skier rip past you in the middle of June. I imagine it wouldn’t be a very pleasant experience, and it would certainly make me wish I had packed my skis.
