Nice ski peak from the Disentis lifts. Conditions were good, so Gi and I made it into a three-day tour of the Glarner Alps, continuing from the Oberalpstock to the Planura hut, then skiing the Schärhorn, Clariden, and Tödi - [ report ]

Ken on the south slope of Piz Ault, above the top ski-lift of Disentis, heading for a crossing the east ridge - (though actually Gi did most of the trail-breaking)

We continued east on this gentle snowfield toward the Chamanna da Cavardiras hut, on down into Val Russein, then turn north, then east, and finally this day to the Planura hut
