This was a private two days ski outing with the members of CERN ski club. On Saturday we climbed up to Cabane des Aiguilles Rouges 2810m from 1800 m. We spend the night there and started to climb up to the summit on Sunday morning 7:30. The summit at 3490 m was reached at 10:00. I setup my station and called CQ on 30 m at 8:12 UTC. G4SSH replied at 8:17 UTC and gave report 559. Then DL6UNF gave 579 followed by GM4FAM with 579 and DL6KVA 549. Last QSO was with YO9DAF. The rest of the group had already disappeared from the view and the leader of the group Jean was waiting for me to start ski down. So unfortunately I had to give QRT already at 10:30, although there were many chasers waiting. If I would have been alone, the time schedule would have been more flexible, but then this course crosses glaciers with all the dangers involved. I enjoyed the two days outing very much. Weather was nice with good visibility and the wind was no problem on the summit.
