Ski Touring (196)
Col de Comberousse by the Gleyzin valley
The large Gleyzin valley is clearly visible from the valley as far as Chambery. It keeps snow cover late and is skiable into May with a reasonable amount of portage (a mountain bike can help).
Jas des Lièvres: couloir N and Croix de Planijean
Climbed via the couloir N (#2), descended by the couloir de la croix de Planijean (#4) with a descent via the south face between the two. Both couloirs have compact powder.
Trainer Couloirs of the Jas de Lievres
At the southern end of the ski resort of Prapoutel - Les 7 Laux the Jas des Lièvres and the Combe de Bedina have been spared ski lifts and only off piste skiers using the Lac drag lift disturb the pea
Le Big LeLunchSki
With just a long lunch and a bit tired after helping the tot with his Fleche on Tuesday I wanted something short and with easy skiing. I opted for a return trip to Chamechaude via the Canyon.
Sun ski and powder
It seemed like the east side of the Belledonne had been much less wind affected than the west (avalanches yesterday at the refuge d'Oule, col du Mouchillon and Couloir de Pertuis).
Brèche du Villonet by the combe du Merlet
http://pistehors.com/col-du-merlet-from-the-pont-du-merlet.htmAccess: From the Maurienne autoroute take the exit at St. Etienne de Cuines for the col du Glandon and the Villards valley.
Col du Merlet from the pont du Merlet
The Col du Merlet is the main ski tour in the Merlet valley. A classic easy day out that passes through summer villages into the high Belledonne mountains.
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 top of the ski lifts take La Combe red and as you exit onto the main piste immediately track north under some bushes to enter the woods via the GR walking trail.
Dent de midi
A rapid lunchtime ski tour. The nice weather of the morning had turned to overcast, cold and windy.
