Distance: 9 km
Weather Warm, 13C at the col. Southerly wind (light foehn).
Snow conditions were very hard at the col with some dimples after the passage of lots of feet at the col. It is possible to ski from the car park but you have to go carefully on the descents. As you climb the snow quality improved and was easier to ski descending. Skate quality was very good. I stopped around where the road ramped up as I wanted to ski without stopping out of breath on the steep Charmont Som climb.
