Welcome to the Sisteron 2012 Expedition Website
The weather at Sisteron this year up to now has been
inconsistent, to say the least. A cracking March saw gliders being
dispatched to the further recesses of Switzerland, while much of May turned out to have been a huge, soggy disappointment. Except for Klaus
Ohlman, who managed to crowbar in a few 1000km
flights on days when others have struggled.
I was lucky enough to kick-start the new season by bagging
a few Alpine peaks at the tail-end of March, having trailed my LS6c down
south for a few days of R&R. Conditions were good as far as the
Maurienne, though many of the real experts were able to carry on much
further north. The picture shows what a frozen lac d'Allos looks like
from 12,000ft in the the Spring.
Here's hoping we get a bit of March weather for this
