After the 20cm of fresh snow the Col de Porte had reopened its nordic area at the Col. The snow was quite soft at midday and choppy with a few holes here or there. It will need a few cycles of preperation to because really skiable and climbing on the soft snow was quite hard at times. Still it was good for a lunch ski. There was an accident on the steep descent behind the col - a cross country skier was airlifted after medical treatment, it is a tricky descent if you go too fast and get it wrong.
Soft, cut up snow. Cold but sunny and no wind.
