Roche Noire and company
Traditional season opener at les 7 laux.
The long way home
First and last Chamechaude for this year, probably, given the snow conditions. It is surprising how much it has melted since Wednesday when i was last in the area.
Snow is back
First time around the nordic trails this year. Snow is soft - there is a lot of new snow that hasn't compacted yet but slides quite well. Some debris on the pistes.
Grand Rocher East and West
Short ski tour to check out the conditions. Not too bad in the end. Destructured snow where it is shady - west bowls of the Grand Rocher. NE face of the Grand Rocher.
Midi Deux at the Col de Porte
A couple of loops of the Col de Porte ski area. Temperature was 5C at the col (1300m.) and there was quite a strong breeze from the north which had left some branches and leaves on the pistes.
In search of lost powder, le Grand Mont
Mike was keen to explore the Beaufortain, the snowiest mountain range in France at the moment with some 3 meters since the 1st Jan at 1800 m.
Tour des Crets de Prabert
Starting from the hamlet of Lnagenet follow the road to Rouare, la Planta then after some zig-zags the roads flattens. Take a right hander to les Avons to finally reach the Col du Lauteret.
There was light snow forecast for Wednesday with a return to good weather for Thursday so I made sure to leave the day free.
Bois Français, Gresivaudan, France
From the Bois de Batie car park follow the cycle trail to towards Chambery for 500m under the bridge.
Petit Van West Face, Belledonne, France
From the Recoin (Chamrousse 1650m) climb to the top of the ski pistes (Croix de Chamrousse). You can generally avoid most of the ski open ski runs. Descend the run to the lac Robert.
