After a bit of XC skiing I toured from the Col de Porte pistes to the bottom drag then continued down the path at the end. Well the path had some bare patches and also fallen trees so was not a great plan. The climb to the Canaple was well tracked. I stopped at the top of the old chair and skied a bit through the forest but the snow wasn't great - soft. Then decided to ski down the road back to the car which made some sense.


Some bare patches on the path down. Crappy snow except on the road.
