5cm of fresh snow on the road. I climbed with scaled nordic skis rather than skating although I saw someone on skating skis but the snow looked a bit soft. 0C at the col. Snow from 1000 meters even on the main road. A lot of wind out of the woods with some drifiting. Not possible to go beyond the Oratoire.
