If anyone's interested to see the latest arrivals at the Grand Saint Bernard, the one month old Saint Bernard puppies called Falko, Faris and Figaro will be at the hospice site on the Col from the weekend (11.08)) for 5 weeks and you'll be able to visit them between 10am and 6pm each day.

I don't go so much in the summer but here's a handful of photo's from the winter

There's an article I wrote for SnowShoe Magazine about the history of the Saint Bernard and making the journey in winter on snowshoes. SnowShoe Magazine Article

Thanks for posting, SwissMountainLeader! That looks like a great snowshoe hike. We'll definitely recommend your article to forum visitors looking for such a trip. And the puppies are adorable...

Thanks, do be aware this is a high alpine tour in winter. It is not a prepared or secured trail. The slopes are not controlled for avalanched and they are not patrolled or monitored. Once you leave the road head you are in a high alpine environment and all the dangers that go with that.

It's not to be undertaken without considerable expertise in evaluating snowpack and assessing avalanche risk.
