Ski Touring (205)
Aulp du Seuil avec Thibaut
Thibaut had suggested we ski the Couloir en Virgule.
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.
Dent Blanc de Piz Bedina
For a change decided to ski tour and see how much snow had fallen on Friday. The Pic Blanche de Bedina is good value as the climb is pretty consistent from the start of the valley.
Les lacs du Vénétier
I didn't have much time as I had to be back in the valley at 12 noon. Les 7 Laux, Barrioz, Prabert. Finally Prabert as it was closest.
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.
Petit Van West Face
Although I had a great day piste skiing at the start of the season at Chamrousse I'd not been back touring this year.
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.
Secret Chamechaude passage du lapin
A little afterwork to ski the Cords Passage, a relatively secret descent off the very popular Chamechaude mountain. I stopped at the first step about 80 meters below the final summit.
