First St Hilaire of 2019
Our first trip up to St Hilaire this season. There had been around 50cm of snow the last week but very little below 1100 meters. Fortunately there is snow making lower down.
les Karellis, Savoie, France
General DescriptionLes Karellis is located in the Maurienne valley in the French Savoy department.
Jasse by fair means
A Jasse "by fair means" in other words taking the mountain bike from home to the snowline then skiing from there. 2350 meters of climbing in total.
Grand Serre Couloirs
From the Desert drag lift follow a track (vallons piste) through the Pres de Clos to pt 1448m then climb up the Grande Montage slopes to the ridge. You can check out the couloirs from here.
Alpe Rossombolmo, lago di Maggiore, Italy
This fearsome climb starts from the village of Ornavasso just north of Gravellone-Toce.
Chamrousse Couloir de la Via Ferrata
From the Croix de Chamrousse (summit of ski runs) follow the ski slopes east to the entrance of the Casse Rousse couloir (black piste).
Pravouta - Dent de Crolles
I parked at le Meuniere and took the fields under the pylons towards the Col du Coq.
I had a limited amount of time so started higher up than yesterday at les Meunieres. I took the fields finding a gap at the top of the first field, it is quite a good plan.
Le Canyon St Hilaire
Off piste session in St Hilaire. The viz was very poor due to low cloud so we were pleased to have the Canyon to ski in. We did 3 runs. Powder on hard snow.
Winter of discontent
This is the winter of our discontent. Or so it would seem reading ski forums given the very poor snow conditions.
