Ski Touring (205)
Pas du Pin in search of powder
Anny said she'd found good powder on the NW bowl of the Orionde.
Pas du Pin, East Couloir Traverse
From the Car park at Prabert follow the road then forest trail to the East to the habert d'Aiguebelle (refuge) at 1740 meters.
Rochers de Chalves spring tour
I've meant to visit Mont St Martin in the winter for a long time. The climb is known to road bikers as "le petit alpe d'Huez" due to the number of zig-zags.
Rochers de Chalves: Pas de âne - Fournet loop
From the corner at 780 meters at the top of the village follow the Lanfray river to 921 meters (les Combes).
Bec Charvet from St Pancrasse
The avalanche bulletin is stuck on 3 at the moment with dire warnings about strong North winds and consequential skier triggered slabs even at "low altitudes" in forest clearings or as you c
A col du Baure from home. It is only possible every 2 or 3 years and you have to seize the day.
Classic ski tour when it is high risk in the mountains. The day started at 9am with 400 vertical meters of trail breaking in snow up to my knees and at times much higher.
Before the storm
A rapid ski tour before stormaggedon (well according to the forecasts) with a blistering climb to the Aulp du Seuil then a quick ski to the foot of the Mallisards.
Pea-souper in the Venetiers
Low cloud was clagging up the valley but a quick check of the les 7 Laux webcams revealed sun from somewhere around 1800 meters. I spoke to Mike who'd wanted to go to the Belle Etoile.
Chardonnet in the mist
After a night in the Argentiere refuge we got up at 5.00 am and fetched snow from outside. It was still dark and the snow took ages to melt.
