Off Piste Skiing (7)
St Hilaire Spring Skiing
A tour of the pistes and off pistes of the old "phantom village".
St Hilaire du Touvet
Tour of the pistes and Canyon route. Not really skiable off piste. Very poor conditions this season. Worse than 2016.
Village of the Damned
70cm of fresh snow at St Hilaire. We skied the Phantom Village right down to the road taking a slight variation we hadn't done before following the ch. du Plan - which is much more open.
Canyon hattrick at St Hilaire
Return to St Hilaire this morning. Much improved with fresh snow. We skied the Canyon off piste in excellent condition. It is passable from top to bottom without problem.
First day of winter
Surprising season. The long range weather reports in the autumn warned of a warm Jan/Feb with a return to winter in March and so it is.
Off piste session in St Hilaire. We did an upper and mid fantom village with a detour via some of the hospital complex where there was quite a bit of fresh snow on a humid tracked base.
Start of winter?
A morning session to take advantage of the 60cm of fresh snow that fell in the Chartreuse (ok more like 20cm at 1000m altitude) with a tour of the off pistes of our local ski area at St Hilaire.
