Nordic Skiing: Tour of Autrans - 1,355 m. (4,446 ft)

Fri, 12 January 2018


Minimum altitude: 1,010 meters

Distance: 23.25 km

Slope Aspect: East

Vertical Climbed: 710 meters (2,330 feet)


Without having a good idea of where I was going, I should have grabbed a piste map, I set out across the plane before climbing to Geve then beyond. The descent back to Autrans had some cut up snow and there were some hairy moments on the corners. My idea had been to reccie the ski area with the idea of competing in the Foulee Blanche long distance race - I wanted to ski the 42km edition but after my tour had second thoughts.


The link to Meaudre was closed and the snow very soggy at valley level. The pistes were much better at Geve.
