Morning ski tour between the rain to the Oursière
There was a bit of a weather window this morning. Unfortunately I was a bit late and missed the best conditions before 10am.There is still snow at the bottom of the pistes at Pipay.
Murianette - Combe de Lancey
Murianette then over to the Combe de Lancey via the Revel - le Mont backroad. Seriously why make life easy when you can make it hard. The "tres amigos" met over at B.
Col de Merdaret, les 7 Laux, France
I'd wondered for a long time if it were possible to reach the Rocher Noire from the Pipay side of les 7 Laux. Normally you climb from the col du Barioz.
Le Paradis Loop
A small loop starting at Gieres, climbing to Uriage then taking a small but steep climb of some 350 meters at 10% after dog and cat home (SPA) with some steeper ramps in places.
Petit Van West Face
Although I had a great day piste skiing at the start of the season at Chamrousse I'd not been back touring this year.
St Enyard to the snow
Freezing today I rode as far as the snow although the road was clear to the fort. Cold hands and feet on the climb but warmed up a bit on the descent. St Enyard is certainly steep at the end.
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.
Back to rollerblading after 15 years 🤤😲😞😦
I've not really roller bladed since we left Paris 15 years ago but I've got a bad elbow so it seemed worth a try. Not too bad standing on the skates although it seems a long way off the ground.
Season End at l'Alpe d'Huez
Would the weather be ok, would it not? Finally we set off from Grenoble under drizzly skies but with the chance of sun. Arriving at resort, well at least you could see a few hundred meters.
A trip to the "communist" resort of les Karellis. We'd not been here before and so it was a bit of discovery.
