Nordic Skiing (188)
CdP + part of Charmant Som GPS battery flat
Second day shadowing. We had a different group of kids, this time on skate skis. Main problem was balance, although they were not bad. L.
Shadowing with the Ecole de Porte
I'm doing some shadowing with the Ecole de Porte after my BASI Nordic course. Started by helping with the laser Biathlon then moved on to a 2 hour session with the schoolkids who were doing classic.
After a quiet weekend a return to the Col de Porte for a lunch ski - currently very little open in the Chartreuse so I'm using my season pass when and where I can.
It doesn't get easier, you just go faster
First climb of the Charmant Som since getting back from Cham.
Return to the CdP
Rapid lunch ski on skate 2 and skate 1. Pretty easy snow in general. Still lots of work to do on skate 2, reasonably happy climbing now on skate 1 although no records.
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.
