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.
St Enyard to the snow
Freezing today I rode as far as the snow although the road was clear to the fort. Cold hands and feet on the climb but warmed up a bit on the descent. St Enyard is certainly steep at the end.
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.
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.
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.
