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).
Trainer Couloirs of the Jas de Lievres
At the southern end of the ski resort of Prapoutel - Les 7 Laux the Jas des Lièvres and the Combe de Bedina have been spared ski lifts and only off piste skiers using the Lac drag lift disturb the pea
Orionde with the Grimp
Today was a club day guiding for the Grimpeurs des Alpes. We'd originally planned a route in the Chartreuse but that was back in December for the program.
Combe de Leatel
if the snow cover is sufficient try to follow the path through the forest to the cross country ski trails at 1420 meters.
Sunny afternoon ski tour
The road to le Clos is still open and there were lots of ruts from cars with chains that had driven up so not great to ski down.
