Ski Touring (12)
A short ski tour with tot to get some exercise before lunch. Excellent skiing conditions in the border cross with the fresh snow. Lots of people from all over the place despite the lockdown.
Col du Beau Molard
I last came this way in 1998 and made exactly the same mistake, climbing via the Bottier chalets rather than taking the normal path.
Afterwork: Pravouta by night
A little afterwork. I started around 16h30 from the car park at 1190 meters but it was no doubt possible to tour from much lower down, from the main road to St Pancrasse at 1000 meters even.
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.
Janvril on Pravouta
With a return to winter, or Janvril as it is known it seemed like a good idea to take a tour. It was possible to start from le Baure climbing up through the pastures towards the Col du Coq.
Cime de la Jasse
I was back from a week in Paris and feeling quite tired so wanted somewhere close and not too complicated - easy climb and ski and no reskinning.
Pravouta: The early bird catches the worm
A quick "before work" to see what the fresh snow had brought. I started at 7am and with the fog kept my head torch all the way to the summit an hour later. Excellent skiing and no one around.
Roche Plane, east face
From the junction at la Frasse behind the recycling climb the field roughly following the summer path to les Maisonettes (1150) passing by a reservoir at 1200m.
Cime de la Jasse
There is a barrier at 1088 meters after Prabert which normally blocks the road in winter.
Grand Van from Chamrousse
From the Recoin (1650m - best conditions late season), Roche Beranger (1750m) or Bachat Bouloud climb to the col des Lessines (2100m) via the Croix de Chamrousse (2253m) and Lacs Roberts (1998m).
