Ski Touring (9)
Der de der avec tot
Almost certainly the last ski tour for Tot this season. He climbed on boots to the summit on more or less solid snow.
Collet d'Allevard under the noon day sun
A little trip back to the Collet d'Allevard for a Sunday tour. It was pretty hot - t-shirt weather for climbing. A lot of people doing the same as us and enjoying the mountains.
Back to roots, Croix de Chamrousse with Tot
Chamrousse is the birthplace of French skiing.
L'Alpette, Chartreuse, France
Short tour with junior (who was testing lighter TSL snow shoes) to l'Alpette which is a small field (hence the name) on the Aulp du Seuil climb.
Col des Ayes
A little tour with tot to get some air. The road was completely pisted by the passage of the hundreds of skiers, snow shoers, sledgers and every other kind of engine.
St Hilaire top of the pistes
Tot was moaning about the ski resorts being closed so I suggested we climb to the top of the ski runs at St Hilaire.
Croix de Chamrousse, Belledonne, France
The Croix de Chamrousse is the summit of the Chamrousse ski pistes at 2250 meters. It can be reached from the Recoin, la Roche Berenger or Casserousse at 1400 meters.
St Hilaire Spring Skiing
A tour of the pistes and off pistes of the old "phantom village".
Col de Arzelier
The col de l'Arzelier is a small ski station on the east barrier of the Vercors mountain range. The are 3 drag lifts and chair offering 350 meters of vertical.
Puy du Rocher from le Lioran
I thought about doing the Puy Mary or Puy d'Arse but there was not enough snow. A little trip to get the ski touring legs working again. Very pretty scenery with the little Cantal mountains.
