Grand Naves, Savoie, French Alps
The Grand Naves nordic ski area boasts 42km of trails prepared for both skating and classic skiing.
I didn't set off with any clear ideas but the aim was to ski around for a couple of hours and do a bit of distance My idea was to warm up on the shorter, inner "loipe" and work outwards.
Figure of eight
Short lunch ride with JG to see if we could nail the steps of the Berger but still two short runs that are a bit limit on a technical level.
Allevard Les Plagnes
A return to the excellent Allevard. Hotter this weekend but tot was motivated for the summit. We skied down via the red, a bit overcooked on the steep pitch but frozen ruts in the shade.
Super Collet Nordic ski
There isn't really a nordic ski area at the Collet d'Allevard but this year, as the lifts are shut, they'd prepared a small "loipe" at the Super Collet.
It was a day to be on classic skis and with a climb time of 34m53 despite some icy sections. I passed a number of skaters bogged down on the slush.
La Marie Singletrack. St Ismier, Gresivaudan, French Alps
From St Ismier, climbed to the Tour d'Arces than past the Pierre Grosse (large rock), continue 500 meters.
About a minute quicker going up today but still not under the 30 minutes for the climb which was the aim.
