Ski Touring (14)
Charmant Som en Classic
36:36 for the climb compared to my record of 32:20 (for both skating and classic). Not bad at all and my 6th best time. I put it down to better technique as well as fitness.
Pas de la Coche pt 2060m
I saw a TR on skitour which spoke of parking at the reservoirs and snow from 1500 meters.
Autumn powder on the Petit Van
Early November snow is not uncommon but always nice to restart the ski season.
Morning ski tour between the rain to the Oursière
There was a bit of a weather window this morning. Unfortunately I was a bit late and missed the best conditions before 10am.There is still snow at the bottom of the pistes at Pipay.
The Eagle has Landed
The forecast wasn't great for the weekend so I got up early to look out of the window. The clouds were starting to clear so I headed up to Prabert.
Orionde with Mike
We ruled out south aspect slopes due to the poor weather forecast and the risk of crust, that seems like a good move.
