Sun ski and powder
It seemed like the east side of the Belledonne had been much less wind affected than the west (avalanches yesterday at the refuge d'Oule, col du Mouchillon and Couloir de Pertuis).
Lil Bec Charvette
I heard that my Thursday meeting was delayed which gave a chance to do a quick tour between two weather fronts on Thursday morning. Snow was still good above 1600m - fresh powder on a firm(ish) base.
Tour du Pin
Chris had taken a half day from work so the idea was not to go too far but do something a little technical. To our surprise, despite recent snowfall to 800m, there was little snow below 1200m.
Killing Field Couloir West
I wanted to go and have a look at the snow that had fallen. Not much below 1500 meters.
Season opener on the Grand Rocher
Grand Rocher is a traditional season kickoff. Not too far to go in doubtful conditions. Not too high when there has been a lot of new snow.
DescriptionThe Col d'Hurtières is a nice little climb out of the Gresivaudan valley near Tencin.
Via dei Colli Morning Ride
Still suffering from a broken rib due to bike crash so couldn't push it on the flat although largely ok on the hills (different position).
A taste of winter on the Dent du Pra
Super refreeze but windy on the climb up with some cloud but sun for the descent with a little return to winter in the Venetiers. There was one spot of about 10m on the path that had no snow.
Chamechaude Folatière Lapin
Spotting a short weather window on Sunday morning I called Luc to see if he wanted to do a quick Chamechaude.
Chamechaude by the Canyon
With the great snow conditions in the Chartreuse this year I was keen to try a new route on the Chamchaude and explore the mountain after a reccie this winter.
