Chasing the sun
I left about quarter of an hour earlier than NY eve and knew I would climb quicker (about 36 minutes skating compared to 42 on classic) so the aim was to see the sunset but I just missed it, or the su
New Year's Eve Ski
What better for New Year's Eve 2019 than a night descent of Charmant Som? I was surprised at the number of people climbing up in the dark - walkiers, ski tourers, sledgers, cross country skiers, young
Post cold ski
Early morning trip to the col de porte, my first cross country skiing since coming down with a throat infection. In fact my last trip on the 22nd seemed to turn a mild cold into the infection.

Charmant Som Classic Style
There is an old saying that if the snow conditions are uncertain you are better off classic skiing. Well after 24 hours of foehn wind things couldn't be more uncertain.
Dominical MTB with tot
We decided to do the same route as last week but with the wind hoped there would be no walkers on it, which was the case.
MTB with totster
We wanted to ride the single to the Cascade to Craponoz, a huge waterfall behind the house. We climbed via the Champ Bertin as far as the reservoirs behind Beauregard.
Coteaux de Crolles

Lago di Maggiore
I wanted to ride the H4 road from Brovello but it is unsurfaced just outside Brovello, I was suprised as people have a VAM of 1600 m/h on it, hard on a MTB or gravel bike.
Quick spin in the heat on arrival in Baveno. Climb is pretty stiff and the road uninteresting but rewarded with lake views at Someraro. Lost pump on the descent but went back to find it this evening.
