Ski Touring (14)
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.
Jasse by fair means
A Jasse "by fair means" in other words taking the mountain bike from home to the snowline then skiing from there. 2350 meters of climbing in total.
Grand Serre Couloirs
From the Desert drag lift follow a track (vallons piste) through the Pres de Clos to pt 1448m then climb up the Grande Montage slopes to the ridge. You can check out the couloirs from here.
Chamrousse Couloir de la Via Ferrata
From the Croix de Chamrousse (summit of ski runs) follow the ski slopes east to the entrance of the Casse Rousse couloir (black piste).
Pravouta - Dent de Crolles
I parked at le Meuniere and took the fields under the pylons towards the Col du Coq.
I had a limited amount of time so started higher up than yesterday at les Meunieres. I took the fields finding a gap at the top of the first field, it is quite a good plan.

Pravouta - Charvet Figure of Eight
I've been away since last week so was a bit out of touch but it was clear from the web that there has been snow, a lot of snow in fact.
From the summit of the Brevent cable car follow the S ridge,. The entrance is 42° and often lacks snow requiring an abseil.
Orionde North-East Bowl
From Prabert (barrier 1088m December to March) follow the road east to 1300 meters (car park), From here take a trail to the right to the Pont de la Betta.
