Nordic Skiing (188)
Sticky Saisies, pushing up daisies
I've never nordic skied at les Saisies but we alpine skied here a few years ago and it was very flat so seemed ideal for cross country.
Desert d'Entremonts closing day
It has snowed a lot during the week, about a meter in total although this has compacted down a bit now.
Stage 10 CdP Classic Skiing
Session with the SNC classic skiing with Guillaume. Excellent conditions with a return to winter an flurries of snow. The black has reopened (it was covered in spring flowers last week).
Col de Marcieu Closing day
I decided to head up after work for a final ski at the Col de Marcieu. I was on classic skis and the tracks were made, more or less.
I wanted to cover all the pistes today which I did.
Col de Porte Stage Day #9
Today we were practising hockey stops, slalom and transitions. Loic had a good tip on V1 transitions from one side to the other which is to do a quick double tap to resynchronize skis and arms.
Charmant Som Classic ski
I was that motivated on my day off but decided to head out anyway. As the conditions are not great a short classic ski before lunch up the Charmant Som road.
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.
Grand Naves, Savoie, French Alps
The Grand Naves nordic ski area boasts 42km of trails prepared for both skating and classic skiing.
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.
