Time:two days on this trip
Difficulty:easy to advanced
People on this trip:  one
Place:Simplonpass (map)
In the past years, it has been the Simplonpass that got the most snow during the early season snow falls. Therefore, it comes only natural that the first ski touring trip every year goes to this location. The terrain around the pass offers plenty of opportunities for all flavors and in all difficulties.
In particular early in the season, the slopes around Spitzhorli make for great powder turns. Thus, on this trip, the first day was dedicated to good turns in this area. The second day, we climbed to Galehorn and discovered a nice untracked couloir down one of its subsidiary summits. The pictures tell the powder story.
