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.
Le Grand Rocher
The Cross country ski area had opened over the weekend and the pistes had been prepared but was closed today. The zero-iso was around 1700 m on Sunday coupled with rain.
Col de Pré Long, Belledonne, French Alps
The climb from Lancey is in the shade in the morning, at least as far as le Mas Julien. Afterwards it is pretty exposed but the road to the power station at the head of the valley has been resurfaced.
A col du Baure from home. It is only possible every 2 or 3 years and you have to seize the day.
Coming of age
21 years since I first toured to this iconic summit in the Belledonne range. The gear has certainly evolved in that time...
Cime de la Valette de Prals from Fenestre
Climb the road towards la Madone de Fenestre to the Vacheries de Devanse, just after (WP 353) take a walking trail that climbs to the SE through the woods to the Plan de Prals.
Col de Comberousse by the Gleyzin valley
The large Gleyzin valley is clearly visible from the valley as far as Chambery. It keeps snow cover late and is skiable into May with a reasonable amount of portage (a mountain bike can help).
