Nordic Skiing (17)
Col de Marcieu, Warm down
After my classic ski on the Herse I wanted to go back on ski it skating but a blizzard arrived out of nowhere so I settled for 5 loops of the Green piste at the Col de Marcieu.
Col de Marcieu
I headed up to the Col de Marcieu for a bit of afternoon classic practice on the blue and green pistes. Basically going around with and without poles.
Last but not least
After the morning activity a farewell, then, to the Chamonix tracks with a last skate up to the top end and back.
Morning spent going around the start zone of the cross country tracks demonstrating skate and classic techniques, filming and getting feedback.
Chamonix Night Fever
I've never tried night ski de fonding before so decided to go out on the Chamonix night skate. I can thoroughly recommend it. There were a lot of people on the 3km "loipe" so you won't feel alone.
L1 Instructor Course Day 4: Classic AM and PM
Another dollar, another day. Some fairly intense activity, classic striding and weight transfer in the morning. Skating one/two technique in the afternoon with a half hour teaching session.
L1 Instructor Course: Classic AM and PM
Went out on classic skis after the course to try and polish off some of the rough edges. Quite a lot of work on technique and we also had to do some instructing.
L1 Instructor Training classic + skate
Things got a bit more serious with more exercises but still some skating around. I went out and did a tour of the red after "work".
L1 Instructor Training skate + classic
Day spent going up and down the pistes first on classic then on skate skis after a break for lunch.
Chamonix Nordic Ski Center
The Chamonix cross country ski area offers around 20km of prepared runs just to the north of the town center. The red Bois run is 11.
