Fantastic conditions this Sunday, i joined some members of the alpine club to do the classic route to Mont Rogneux(3083m), an easy summit with 1700m of height gain.
We started at the parking in the main road of Val de Bagnes, followed the pink signs, with 1h15m of climb we stopped next to Brunet hut to drink and eat something, after a 15min break we proceed to Mont Rogneux by the normal route, it’s a very crowdy route, quite sure when there is a marked avalanche risk.
With 3h35m we reached the crowdy summit, to the descent we did a less known route, we walked some 150m with the skis on our bags and went down by the Northeast face, not very steep, the snow was brutal, we found some untouched snow, awesome! Once at the road that goes to cabane brunet we followed the road a bit and then we crossed by the forest into a steep area, i had tons of fun with the team.
To end this fantastic Sunday we stopped at Cataloupe restaurant at Le Chable where we had a nice meal. 
A special thanks to all members of the groupe of this Sunday
