L said it would be interesting to come on Saturday and so I was set for a long session, first with the SNC groups (saw some old friends from last year) then with the SNC kids.
CdP + part of Charmant Som GPS battery flat
Second day shadowing. We had a different group of kids, this time on skate skis. Main problem was balance, although they were not bad. L.
Shadowing with the Ecole de Porte
I'm doing some shadowing with the Ecole de Porte after my BASI Nordic course. Started by helping with the laser Biathlon then moved on to a 2 hour session with the schoolkids who were doing classic.
After a quiet weekend a return to the Col de Porte for a lunch ski - currently very little open in the Chartreuse so I'm using my season pass when and where I can.
To the snowline
No ski this weekend so I decided to use a spare hour and a half on Saturday afternoon to ride up and look at the snow conditions on the road to the Col du Coq.
It doesn't get easier, you just go faster
First climb of the Charmant Som since getting back from Cham.
Return to the CdP
Rapid lunch ski on skate 2 and skate 1. Pretty easy snow in general. Still lots of work to do on skate 2, reasonably happy climbing now on skate 1 although no records.
Ice cold in Allevard
We headed up reasonably early to the Collet. It was very cold, especially on the Claran lift which was not sheltered from the breeze.
Last but not least
After the morning activity a farewell, then, to the Chamonix tracks with a last skate up to the top end and back.
Morning spent going around the start zone of the cross country tracks demonstrating skate and classic techniques, filming and getting feedback.
