A trip to the "communist" resort of les Karellis. We'd not been here before and so it was a bit of discovery.
Bois Barbu Odyssey
General DescriptionBois Barbu (Villard du Lans) is linked with Herbouilly and Corrençon in the Vercors. Together they constitute the three access points of the Haut Vercors nordic ski area.
Orionde with Mike
We ruled out south aspect slopes due to the poor weather forecast and the risk of crust, that seems like a good move.
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.
