Pistes and Off-Pistes at Arzelier
Today tot and I decided to revisit the Col de l'Arzelier. Tot had some of his early ski experiences in this small and somewhat remote ski area.

Tour of the Gorge de Manival
Climb the left bank of the Manival stream following a good jeep track to the to the Manival Forest Cabin (open, unguarded) at 870m. The track is very steep for 50 meters.

Jas des Lièvres, south face
Follow the road to the Pont de la Betta then a forest trail to the habert d'aiguebelle (refuge - unguarded). From here you can climb either by the east or south face.
Pravouta from les Meunieres
With considerable avalanche risk in the Chartreuse, large skier triggered slabs possible on north facing slopes according to the bulletin, it was not a day to tempt the devil.
First tracks on the Dent de Crolles
It is rare to make tracks on the Dent de Crolles these days but the fresh snow and wind had wiped any old tracks and at 9am no-one had yet set out for this iconic summit.
Pravouta SW Bowl
Short ski tour with Mike to check out the SW bowl of the Pravouta. The road has a good layer of snow on it now, almost like a piste.
Cime de la Jasse
There is a barrier at 1088 meters after Prabert which normally blocks the road in winter.
