Ski Touring (30)
First ski tour of the winter
Due to my knee and ankle injury picked up riding on ice in mid November I'd not toured this season as it is quite painful when the snow is difficult.
Tour of the Roche Noire
Zero portage, not bad for a 20th May at 1600 meters! I basically did a tour of the Roche Noire, a lot of km for not much vertical.
Back to Pipay but we are a bit restricted by the lockdown.
Dome d'Oudis with Totster
Tot was busy in the morning so we went out right after lunch. It had snowed 5-7cm. There were a lot of purges some of which had crossed the ski runs.
Dome des Oudis with tot
Tot had bad memories of this climb from earlier in the season but with lockdown imminent I didn't fancy going elsewhere.
Le Grand Rocher
Tot was on snowshoes and me on skins. Amazing how many cars there were parked up, right back past the ski area so over 1km to reach the start of the trails.
Pas de la Coche pt 2060m
I saw a TR on skitour which spoke of parking at the reservoirs and snow from 1500 meters.
Morning ski tour between the rain to the Oursière
There was a bit of a weather window this morning. Unfortunately I was a bit late and missed the best conditions before 10am.There is still snow at the bottom of the pistes at Pipay.
Dent d'Arclusaz from Epernay
From Epernay follow the road that climbs to the south-east, then zig-zags to the south.
Pas de la Coche, Belldonne, France
RouteFrom the parking at Prabert, (pont de la Betta 1336m after March) follow the GR549 trail to the Habert d'Aiguebelle at 1800m. Continue east to the Pas de la Coche (2030 m).
