Yokohama, Japan, Melb. Expat.
for those who can't read French:

This Saturday, June 18 at 2 p.m., the Italian weather station installed at Col Major (4,750 m), very close to the summit of Mont Blanc, recorded the temperature of 10.4 degrees Celsius. A more than exceptional value for such an altitude. The previous record for this weather station managed by the regional environmental protection agency of Valle d'Aosta was 6.8°C. A temperature recorded in June 2019 lower by 3.6 ° C than that of Saturday.

Marmolada:

Brought back memories of this from 2019:
One of the longest ‘inbounds’ ski runs I think I have ever done, firm and fast Italian ‘packed powder’ for most of it in January 2015. Sad and scary to think what damage we are all inflicting on this planet and ourselves through accelerated climate change yet we still have deniers. My thoughts to those that have lost loved ones in this incident and the rescue crews and responders.

At Marmolada, or down from Punta Helbronner?

Just the Marmolada. I think they call the groomed run the Punta Roca which is about 12km with 1800m vertical. Loved the Dolomites and Sellaronda circuit. Really sad to hear these glaciers disappearing so quickly.
