First Virgule of 2014
It has snowed consistently over the last couple of weeks and although I didn't expect the forest to be great the rest of the route should be ok.
Chemin de Herse
You can start at either the Col de Marcieu, there is a trail from the top of the sledging slope or from les Fontanettes just before the Col. You can buy tickets at the Col d Marcieu only.
Côteau de Crolles
This route is in the Chartreuse Regional Park behind the small town of Crolles about 20km north of Grenoble. It forms a dumbell.
Not feeling great, start of some flu bug.
Foothills of Lake Maggiore (Stresa / Baveno)
Short training route. From Stresa ride down the lake to Beligrate where you take a right turn to the village (one way - Via Novembre). Pass under the railway line to the Via Panorama to Cologna.
Stresa to Mottarone
This is the classic climb in the area to the ski resort of Mottarone from Stresa. From the coast road follow road signs for Mottarone near the Borremeo Palace Hotel.
Côteau de la Terrasse by the valley
From Crolles Town Hall take cycle path to the Chateau de Bernis then track to les Echelles.
Cabane de Berger
Huge amount of snow on the runs at St Hilaire today. I was accompanied to the top of the runs by a very intelligent sheep dog who seemed to understand English.Weather: Poor refreeze. Warm.
Cabane de Berger Rocher du Midi
From les Vials the simplest is to climb to the top of the pistes (watch out for skiers).
Pas de la Rousse, East Couloir
Climb to the Col de l'AlpeFrom the village of les Prés take the forest road direction in the direction of Pre Orcel.
