Rollerski Col de la Croix des Adrets, Belledonne, French Alps
I'd been thinking about this climb and the logistics. In the end I drove over the col and left a bike then parked at Tencin and climbed up on classic rollerskis.
A new way to the Col des Ayes for me, Via les Hurtieres (pretty climb with almost no cars) then in the village via the Col de la Croix de Theys and a 2km gravel section to rejoin les Berts and the col
Cormet de Roselend Nordic Skiing
Ok it is well known that a number of mountain passes in Europe are suitable for late season nordic skiing or crust skiing as it is sometime called.
Sunday Lauteret Feeling
Rebooting my cycling career with another climb across the valley, apart from the danger of being squashed by a speeding driver crossing over the valley it is much closer than the right bank for climbs
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.
Hauts Plateaux du Vercors
End of season crust skiing destination. Wait for a solid refreeze in spring or use wider nordic skis or snow shoes.
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.
