Mont Noir les Coulmes
From the north side of the Col de Romeyere take a path that climbs through the woods to the Pas du Folet then follow the trail to the South-West to the Barraque Bonnard and Mont Noir.
St Hilaire du Touvet
Tour of the pistes and Canyon route. Not really skiable off piste. Very poor conditions this season. Worse than 2016.
Vallon de Marcieu
This is the first time this year that conditions have been acceptable for this route. Some guys attempted it after the 11 Jan snowfall, which was fairly considerable but had to downclimb the couloir.
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.
Levo - Stresa - Someraro loop
Rode up to Levo. Down to Stresa then returned via the climb to Someraro for a fairly quick and efficient 850 meters of climbing. You can find water at Levo on the main road.
A seuil before work
A before work ski tour, just like old times. I was a bit apprehensive about the snow conditions.
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.
Heavy Snow in the Chartreuse
The comma couloir has not been good this year. Last time in January the snow was hard and scralped in the couloir and soggy in the woods, but there was a good base and the pistes were ok.
With limited time it was back to the Aulp de Seuil and the Comma Couloir. I was somewhat concerned about the snow conditions so didn't struggle to start early. I set out at 9.
