This Wednesday at 7:00pm in room 208B of the Arrillaga Outdoor Education and Recreation Center, Justin Driemeyer (MS '07) will be presenting on his trip to the Alps last spring. Here's what he has to say about it:

 

Mont Blanc and The Matterhorn, 2 of the most famous peaks of the alps, are linked by the Haute Route - 7 days of backcountry ski touring from hut to hut wearing light packs and carrying no food or camping gear through some of the most incredible mountain scenery there is.  I'll talk a little about the road to get there for non-expert skiers (I didn't own skis until 2012) and about some of the other ski touring around Chamonix, then jump into my 7 day haute route trip in April 2014.
