We couldn't decide on a ski trip today so late in the afternoon I decided to take my skating skis up the road from the col de Porte to the Bergeries just under the Charmant Som mountain. A nice little 350 meter climb. The conditions were pretty good despite the warm weather and wind from the south. The bits of the road that were south facing were a bit soft. Lots of walkers and lots of footprints on the piste. If I'd had another hour I would have done a second climb!
