I had to drop junior off at 9am so not much time so I thought la Feclaz would be an idea. In the end 10am was a bit late.
I wanted to cover all the pistes today which I did.
La Course du Grand Rocher
Grand Rocher ski race at Barioz. It is a relay. First part is a 1150 meter skimo race. 120 racers set off in a mass start and there are 5 transitions to do en-route.
I didn't set off with any clear ideas but the aim was to ski around for a couple of hours and do a bit of distance My idea was to warm up on the shorter, inner "loipe" and work outwards.
Too much snow to go further afield this morning so I did some cross country American style. That is, making tracks around the local football pitch.
Tour of the Chamechaude - a myth
The link between le Sappey and St Hugues hasn't been prepared for 4 years. I'd lost faith they'd ever do it again but then a message from Chamechaude nordic, it would open this weekend.
A ski around the fitness trail in Crolles because there was too much snow to go further afield. Not too bad on classic skis.
Final nordic skiing session of the winter, probably. At least in resort. La Feclaz closed yesterday and I'd hoped things would still be okay for skiing today.
Last Barioz of 2019
Last Barioz before the annual closure on the 31st March. Overall a good season. I skied the Creve Coeur, Refuge, Levant and Luisard for a good tour of the runs. Excellent skiing.
