Grand Plan flèche and chamois
Time for the tots traditional fleche and chamois tests with the Barioz ski club in their micro ski area of the Grand Plan.
Dent d'Arclusaz from Epernay
From Epernay follow the road that climbs to the south-east, then zig-zags to the south.
Skating to the Crêt Luisard
I knew there was a lack of snow. All the lower runs are shut. The skating was pretty good. A lot of people on foot, some stomping on the ski runs, doh! Not too many other skiers.
Col du Prelong
A return to the Pre Long, maybe the hardest climb in the Gresivaudan, and that is just the surfaced bit ! A good time of 25m36s from le Mas Julien to the end of the surfaced road.
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).
Grand Rocher Laps
Good conditions in the Belledonne for the end of November. I had to break trail from the Barioz parking to the summit, not that hard in the 20cm of fresh snow. There is no base below 1500 meters.
Scia NW Couloir
Follow the trail to the habert d'Aiguebelle (refuge, renovated in 2008 but closed).
Spin round the trails of the Col de Porte, generally good skiing conditions. Last week's fresh snow has packed down and there are no bare patches, yet! As ever the black trail is closed.
Orionde NW face
From the col de Mouilles follow the road (closed in the winter) towards the Pré Marcel.
La Combe de Lancey, Gresivaudan, Alps France
The climb of the Combe de Lancey begins at Lancey via a long drag past the old paper mills.
