Almost like spring today. I did a couple of loops of the Brimbelles and once round the conversation to warm up.
Tour of the pistes and Canyon route. Not really skiable off piste. Very poor conditions this season. Worse than 2016.
Spin round the trails of the Col de Porte, generally good skiing conditions. Last week's fresh snow has packed down and there are no bare patches, yet! As ever the black trail is closed.
This is the first time this year that conditions have been acceptable for this route. Some guys attempted it after the 11 Jan snowfall, which was fairly considerable but had to downclimb the couloir.
We skied just the middle part of the fantom village. The snow depths were not too bad here but the snow was heavy where it hadn't been skied. Lack of snow under the trees.
Return to Pravouta by bike. I found skiable snow below the village of le Baure and depths rapidly increased. The big issue was visibility with a real pea souper.
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.
Change of program from doing exercises around the Sagnes green run.
We decided to try Saturday lunch and early afternoon to see if is a bit less busy, at least compared to the opening weekend. It was.
Nordic ski at Chamrousse. Pistes in good condition but not much time left after the commute.
