All is quiet on New Year's day
Afternoons skiing at les 7 Laux. The parking was rammed and it was difficult to get through the parked cars, we were door handle to door handle in places.
Hooning around the 7 Laux pistes
Weather was forecast as good for the morning with fresh snow moving in during the course of the afternoon, so it looked good for another pre-season trip to the Sept laux.
Stella Greasy Rollerski
It was a grey day. After my run last week I wasn't keen to repeat the experience and have to rest up for a few days. Cycling - too cold and mucky. Nordic skiing? not enough snow.
Back up to the 7 laux, they'd opened the Oursiere lift but we ended up stuck on it for half an hour when it suffered some kind of breakdown. The pisteurs were a bit cagey as to what had happened.
First snow at les Sept Laux
We'd heard the Sept Laux was opening after another 50cm of fresh snow at the summit of the pistes bringing the total to 1 meter. We made it up around 9.
Dirty Weekend Rollerski Tour
I took advantage of a small weather window in between the rain to ski the big loop with a variation through the campus and around the meander loop.
Turin Urban Rollerskiing
Urban rollersking in Turin. Well not quite but in the city center Valentino park as the roads can be a bit variable (tramlines, cobbles, Italian drivers).
The fine weather came a bit later than expected so probably taking rollerskis out was not the best plan. I decided to do the superloop clockwise.
A little tour along the lac after lunch at the Chalet d'Aix. Very quiet out of season.
After yesterday's ride I wanted a gentle leg loosener so decided to head out onto the tow path for a rollerski.
