A short ski around the pistes of the Col de Porte. The snow was ok, there has been a bit of fresh and they've repaired the bits that suffered in the high altitude rain. Going was not that fast though. Conditions are probably much quicker earlier on. I had toyed with the idea of coming up before work and nordic skiing or ski touring. However reports of ski touring are of crust, perhaps due to the wind and high altitude rain.
There has been around 5cm of fresh snow yesterday but also rain.
