Nordic Skiing (188)
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.
SN Chartrousin were planning on climbing to the summit of the Charmant Som. That meant the road would be pisted and in good condition.
Col de Porte Training #8
Last training session with the SNC before the spring break. We worked again on gainage and balance. Still need to improve coordination.
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.
Col de Porte Nordic Training #7
On this, the 7th training session we were focussed on balance and upper body with our coach Etienne as you can see in the video below.
Bois Barbu Odyssey
General DescriptionBois Barbu (Villard du Lans) is linked with Herbouilly and Corrençon in the Vercors. Together they constitute the three access points of the Haut Vercors nordic ski area.
Training Day 6
We were focussed on balance with a number of exercises to get weight forward on the push phase as well as some skate 1 balance practice such as pushing twice on the glide ski and trying to make the gl
Col de Porte Training #5
The day was spent practicing hill climbing on the ramp near the Biathlon circuit as well as balance practice on the descents (skiing on one ski as far as possible).
Plateau d'Arselle on SloMo
A false good idea going to the Arselle after a super-hot February (one of the hottest since 1900). I actually had to skate all the way down the descent of the normally superfast Astragal.
With the col de Marcieu closing its nordic ski area and le Sappey in poor condition the next nearest nordic ski area is the Beldina / les 7 Laux.
