Year of the Cat (Mont de Chat, Couloir des Chênaies)
First off I beached my car on deep snow, trying to turn for the parking. I should have immediately parked when I saw the road was white.
Petites Roches Classic Ski
Nice snow for an early morning classic ski working a bit on technique.
Sticky classic ski
I shouldn't have bothered really. When I arrived at the trail head it was raining quite hard and the piste was completely waterlogged but as I was on classic skis I thought it might not be too bad.
An afterwork, this time on skate skis so a bit quicker. The conditions were good up on the higher part of the trail with cold snow.
Classic ski afterwork
I took off work an hour early to head to the Col de Marcieu nordic trails. They had been pisted and reopened following fresh snow but there were a few reports of lack of depth.
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.
Mud mud glorious mud
Longish tour of the Gresivaudan valley with tot. The idea had been to take gravel trails to avoid the mud.
Red sky at night
Climb to the Charmant Som this time on classic skis. There were no tracks. The climb to the Oratoire took 43m10, last time in March on classic skis was 36:36.
The Invisible Skier
I arrived early at the Col de Porte as it has been rammed in previous weeks. Even before 9am there were quite a lot of cars.
First chemin de l'Herse of the season.
I'd heard the Chemin de l'Herse had been pisted at the weekend for cross country skiing.
