First St Hilaire of 2019
Our first trip up to St Hilaire this season. There had been around 50cm of snow the last week but very little below 1100 meters. Fortunately there is snow making lower down.
Training morning with the SN Chartrousin then a climb to the Bergeries of the Charmant Som to warm up (climb took a reasonable 37m56 and the descent a speedy 7m17)
Pravouta: The early bird catches the worm
A quick "before work" to see what the fresh snow had brought. I started at 7am and with the fog kept my head torch all the way to the summit an hour later. Excellent skiing and no one around.
Beldina Powder Session
Route: Tour du Pre de l'Arc x 1, Myrtilles x 3
Bergeries du Charmant Som
The top of the Charmant Som plateau had been pisted to make up for the lack of trails lower down. A real treat to do a couple of loops in pleasant conditions although we do the same crust skiing.
Skating to the Crêt Luisard
I knew there was a lack of snow. All the lower runs are shut. The skating was pretty good. A lot of people on foot, some stomping on the ski runs, doh! Not too many other skiers.

Chambery to Aix les Bains by the cyclepath
A long rollerski on a fantastic autumn day. Leaving from Chambery I took the bike lane all the way to the Petit Port at Aix les Bains then back again.
Lunch roller ski at the Lac du Bourget
A short rollerski down the lake cyclepath at the lake du Bourget
