Ski Touring (23)
Pas de la Coche pt 2060m
I saw a TR on skitour which spoke of parking at the reservoirs and snow from 1500 meters.
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.
Dent d'Arclusaz from Epernay
From Epernay follow the road that climbs to the south-east, then zig-zags to the south.
Pas de la Coche, Belldonne, France
RouteFrom the parking at Prabert, (pont de la Betta 1336m after March) follow the GR549 trail to the Habert d'Aiguebelle at 1800m. Continue east to the Pas de la Coche (2030 m).
Grand Rocher Laps
Good conditions in the Belledonne for the end of November. I had to break trail from the Barioz parking to the summit, not that hard in the 20cm of fresh snow. There is no base below 1500 meters.
Scia NW Couloir
Follow the trail to the habert d'Aiguebelle (refuge, renovated in 2008 but closed).
Le Grand Rocher
The Cross country ski area had opened over the weekend and the pistes had been prepared but was closed today. The zero-iso was around 1700 m on Sunday coupled with rain.
A col du Baure from home. It is only possible every 2 or 3 years and you have to seize the day.
Coming of age
21 years since I first toured to this iconic summit in the Belledonne range. The gear has certainly evolved in that time...
Cime de la Valette de Prals from Fenestre
Climb the road towards la Madone de Fenestre to the Vacheries de Devanse, just after (WP 353) take a walking trail that climbs to the SE through the woods to the Plan de Prals.
