After last summer’s shoot with Agathe, we were both keen for another session in the mountains, but this time in winter. With snow everywhere, it was a big challenge to find a suitable location, but we finally remembered that the roof of the Argentière hut, deep in a glacial basin, doubles as a helipad. Since the hut is still unstaffed, with only the winter shelter open, we wouldn’t be bothering anybody by using the space for a couple of hours.
Access was a bit challenging, as Agathe was on a snowboard, we needed a lot of equipment and the hut requires crossing some serious glacier terrain, but we eventually managed, largely thanks to the help of Théo Racine. Agathe braved the very low temperatures for as long as she could, and Théo and her even gave me a little salsa session at the very end! All we had left to do was ski down after sunset, always an exciting moment.
Enjoy the images!
