Nordic Skiing (98)
Charmant Som Nordic
The overnight rain hadn't done too much damage. The ski pistes were in good condition having been bashed overnight. The road up to Charmant-Som was hard with a lot of debris over the first km.
Crêt Luisard bis
Creve Coeur: 2.5km (09h00): A bit hard with a center rut. 6m02sRefuge: 8km - (09h30): Good climbing conditions, fast descending. 27m46s to the col! Not bad going.
I've always thought the Col du Coq should be skiable on cross country skis. The choice was classic or skating.
Creve Coeur: 2.
Skated over to the pistes of St Hilaire from the Col de Marcieu.
Out of the wind
With the high winds I didn't fancy touring today so decided on a the Chemin de l'Herse which I'd seen had been bashed overnight (it was covered in fresh snow yesterday).
Round and round the garden
Choice was between ski touring, skating or staying in bed... or doing some work. The avalanche bulletin wasn't encouraging for ski touring.
Skating in the Vercors
Started at the Barnets car park, maybe not the best bet as it is a stiff 2km climb on an unpisted track. The ski area is really great. Two nice loops. A blue to warm up on and a red to finish.
Lans en Vercors Allières Nordic Area
Located at altitude 4.5 km from Lans en Vercors itself on the Allières in a "hidden valley" there are three circuits, a red, a blue and a green.
Cret du Poulet in the clouds
Had work to do this morning so rather than tour decided to skate to the Cret de Luisard (I ski tour to the same summit) via the Cret du Poulet.
