Nordic Skiing (98)
Barioz nordic ski area
50 km of pistes cross country runs for classic and skating. 2.5km of greens, 14km of blues, 23 km of reds and 7.5 km black with two practise areas.
Emeindras - Eynard
Skate from le Sappey to Emeindras. It is quite a long climb but not too steep. The snow was good, a bit soft outside of the village runs which made climbing hard work at times.
Le Sappey Nordic Ski Area
42 km of trails from le Sappey en Chartreuse for all levels.
Les 7 Laux Nordic Ski Area
The nordic ski area extends over an altitude from 1400 to 1500 meters. There are 22km of runs for nordic skiing plus marked snow shoe trails.
Charmont Som by the road
Skating session from the Col de Porte. The first 1500 meters were hard, old snow, frozen in places but the slope isn't too steep here so not a big problem.
Sunday afternoon St Hilaire Skate
Change of programme to skating on the Chemin de l'Herse. The ski resort of St Hilaire closed yesterday and even if it wasn't that busy it was even lonelier on the pistes today.
Nordic Skiing from the col de Marcieu
Mike and I decided to do a quick loop on the Chemin de l'Herse with our skating skids.
Chemin de Herse
You can start at either the Col de Marcieu, there is a trail from the top of the sledging slope or from les Fontanettes just before the Col. You can buy tickets at the Col d Marcieu only.
