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.

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.

First climb of the Charmant Som since getting back from Cham.

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.
