Road Access Clear except for car-park access

Vertical Climbed: 0 meters (00 feet)
Vertical Descended: 2350 meters (7710 feet)
Distance: 17.6 km
Weather Light snow


With 65cm of fresh snow in the Chartreuse down to 1000 meters it seemed about time to attempt some of the off-pistes at St Hilaire. The pistes were pretty well covered but off piste was only really practical where the runs were open. We skied the first part of the fantom village. Good snow, even on the drop offs. The second section was ok but lots of tree roots towards the bottom. Basically ok above 1100 meters. We also did the entrance of the Canyon, again good snow but the lower part of the Canyon looked a bit thin although some people had tried it. We need another 30cm or so of snow.
