Charmant Som Bergeries and Beyond!

There's not much snow, about 10cm on the road (as opposed to 45cm measured Meteo France on the field next door. So it doesn't bode well for an end of season. The road had been pisted so climbed well to the Oratoire (PB 38 minutes - 450 VAM) then crusty to the Bergeries.

From the end of the road (Areches, la Chornais) follow a track which crosses a red ski run then zig-zags into the woods. At around 1660 m a long traverse to the SW brings you out of the woods and across a couple of avalanche couloirs.
