Ski Touring (25)
The Eagle has Landed
The forecast wasn't great for the weekend so I got up early to look out of the window. The clouds were starting to clear so I headed up to Prabert.
Drôle de con on the Dent de Crolles
Parked at the Salt Depot and took the la Gorgette trail just after the bridge following a well made snowshoe track that came from St Pancrasse up to the winter carpark at 1220 meters.
Dent de Crolles: prairie and Pravouta
We've had quite a bit of fresh snow over the last 5 days. The automatic weather station at the Col de Porte (1300 meters) showed two falls of 30 + 25cm.
Pravouta after work
Little after work ski tour to check out the snow. I've been very busy the last few weeks and haven't had much time to get out.
Dent de Crolles - Pravouta
I'd thought about heading to the Belledonne but cloud was developing at 7.30 and the Chartreuse was clear. There was also a strong N.
Luc said that there was a weather window on the Chartreuse between 10 and 1pm and so it turned out (thanks to meteociel.fr).
The snow transformed late today but as I had to be somewhere at 11.30 I couldn't wait for it.
Rochers de Chalves spring tour
I've meant to visit Mont St Martin in the winter for a long time. The climb is known to road bikers as "le petit alpe d'Huez" due to the number of zig-zags.
Le Col du Chardonnet SW side
Descent to the glacier d'ArgentièreFrom the col des Grands Montets ski down to the glacier d'Argentière.
Fête du Travail on the Belle Etoile
Reunion of Team Bivouak for a Belle Etoile, well in fact we started with no fixed objective but decided that Prabert was nearest to home and with least portage (5 minutes from the car).
