Magical View

Magical view towards the Ecrins Alps. You can see Aiguille du plat de la Selle (3596m) in the front right. In the background, left, Ailefroide (3974m) is visible. The summit with a glacier on top is Les Rouies (3589m) (background, middle-right)
The sky was really beautiful dark blue that day. It was a great view!

Picture taken from around 3500m at the Mont-de-Lans Glacier, Les 2 ALpes

Re: Is this at the top of

Yes you are right, this is at the top of the Mont-de-Lans glacier of Les deux Alpes at about 3400m.There is one lift going further to the meeting point with the la Grave lift. This is the one before. Greets Lodewijk
