Ski Touring (205)
Dent blanche de bedina
A last minute outing this morning after dropping the boy at school at 9am. Le Jasse and Jas were skied yesterday so maybe something in between? Not much snow below 1400 meters.
It had rained heavily to 2000m plus the day before and some sections of piste showed the effects but generally the snow was soft and very skiable. We took a few runs through the fantom village.
Couloir Virgule before Carmen
The weather service announced a window from 10 to 2 pm, just before the arrival of storm Carmen. It had snowed overnight but only about 15cm.
Up at Chamrousse for skate training so lots of loops around the stadium area plus a final tour of the plateau. Cold snow was not easy to ski at the end.
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).
Good in parts, like the Curate's Egg. The wind has considerably affected the snow. It has been blowing strongly from the north for a couple of days.
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.
Roche Noire and company
Traditional season opener at les 7 laux.
Climb by the Maturu piste. I had a look at the antenne couloir but after a few turns at the top it seemed a bit dry, not as good as last year.
Dent de Crolles: prairie and Pravouta
We've had quite a bit of fresh snow over the last 5 days. The automatic weather station at the Col de Porte (1300 meters) showed two falls of 30 + 25cm.
