Coiromonte from Lake Orta, Italy
General DescriptionThe climb is split into two sections. From the lake at Pettenasco to Pratolungo it is around 6% over 2.5km for 150 meters of climbing.
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.
Ice road skaters
Thib had warned me there was not much snow left but I had difficulty believing him as conditions had been good a few days ago.
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.
I'd heard conditions were very good at le Feclaz still on the trails and that the resort were preparing the trails up to the 12th April despite being officially closed.
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.
