This past weekend, we went to Valloire in the French Alps to enjoy the fresh fallen snow in France. This new Vuarnet Day was the perfect opportunity for us to test the new 1957 Glacier in real conditions. Indeed, the hook temples, resembling our first glacier, offer a better grip and the leather removable side shields greatly protect from high winds and the sun’s strong rays. There is no doubt the Glacier 1957 was perfectly designed for extreme conditions.
With some clouds were present, we took advantage of our Saturday and got to the top of the Grand Plateau ski lift facing the Famous Aiguille Noire. Once our skis touched the ground and sunglasses were secured on our faces, we tookto the direction of a neighboring slope to make our first turns in the immaculate snow. We also took the opportunity to take some pictures of this beautiful view.
