Dent Blanc de Piz Bedina
For a change decided to ski tour and see how much snow had fallen on Friday. The Pic Blanche de Bedina is good value as the climb is pretty consistent from the start of the valley.
Plus ça change...
The ski area at the col was full of school groups so I decided to head up to the Charmant Som for the 8th or 9th time this season.
Night follows day
Fantastic conditions both on and off piste, although you'd have to search for powder. It was fairly cold with some wind at the top of the pistes. Not crowded.
Went up to the col de Porte for an afternoon session on classic and skate skis. Generally doing exercises - balance, no poles etc with a couple of loops thrown in for fun.

Post cold ski
Early morning trip to the col de porte, my first cross country skiing since coming down with a throat infection. In fact my last trip on the 22nd seemed to turn a mild cold into the infection.
Last Allevard of 2019
Last Collet d'Allevard of 2019 and first of the season. We just went for a couple of hours intensive skiing thanks to the excellent Allevard lift pass system. It was painfully cold at altitude.
