There’s still snow at altitude, even in June! Here’s a very recent film ascending the Galibier from the North.

Click on the link below to see film of a descent of the Col du Galibier in August this year.
Here’s a pictorial record of covering 2000+kms, 19 mountain passes, in 3 countries. Lifes tough in 30 degree C heat, but I had a great time, hope you enjoy the pics too!
Galibier – France
On the Galibier there was a professional photographer taking pictures of all the motorcyclists and cyclists passsing by. Even if only one in 50 bought off him he’d have made a lot of money!
Mt Cenis- Italy
The water is held in a huge lake behind a dam here, with this weird triangular building overlooking it all. An hour spent over lunch and I’d got a great suntan it was so warm!.
Everyone takes their picture here, so why should I be any different?
En route to the Swiss Alps and days of pleasure.
