Its cool alright. Has been posted in some other thread. If you look at the time signature on the video it seems to record a new clip of a few mins every few hours and show it. Its never more than a few hours old though really.

From UKRGB
at present all rivers in the Hautes Alpes are running on the top end of their grade, due to very warm days and the nights not being cold.

Last week although we had a week of good weather (the first for some time) river levels remained low. However they came up a lot Saturday and over the weekend. I would expect them to continue to rise this week. (The levels on the slalom course at L'Argentiere rose substantially this weekend)

Spring has finally arrived across the Southern Alps with warmers nights, thus except a bigger than normal late May into June, as everything starts to go


Lets hope it doesn't rain! :)

Really cool the way you can see paddlers going down the rivers... Even saw a small bit of carnage at la durance video
