Huge amount of snow, we can't stay at home. Telephone call at friday evening and 12 hours later we (Enrico and I) are on the right site: Capanne di Carrega, the easiest access point to Mount Carmo from south side with our snow shoes.
We met 4 alpine ski mountaineering and other 2 young people.
Visibility over the Alps was excellent.
Capanne di Carrega - Carmo Normal Route Climbed Date Climbed: Jan 20, 2008
Clouds over Genova, but pictures from webcams on Antola, Beigua and Aiona showed me a bright sunshine everywhere at an altitude of more than 1000 m and there was snow too, even if temperature was high +8°C.
A telephone call to friends and 5 of us (plus one dog) went to Capanne di Carrega, starting point to Mt Carmo. From different paths more than 25 people reached the summit, someone with skies, others with snowshoes.
Visibility was good; Mt Viso, Gran Paradiso, Cervino (Matterhorn), Rosa Group, Rhaetian Alps and Dolomites.
