Last Virgule but not least of 2019
This is almost certainly going to be my last Virgule Couloir of 2019. First off all getting up at 6am during the week is not my cuppa but the reward is seeing the sun rise over the Alps.
Cime de la Jasse
I was back from a week in Paris and feeling quite tired so wanted somewhere close and not too complicated - easy climb and ski and no reskinning.
Training Day 6
We were focussed on balance with a number of exercises to get weight forward on the push phase as well as some skate 1 balance practice such as pushing twice on the glide ski and trying to make the gl
Trip around the sites of Paris, Opera, Madeleine, Assembly National, Champs Elysees, Arch de Triomphe, Seine, Tuilleries, Louvre etc. Only in Paris.
Rocky style, run up the steps of the Sacre Coeur. Very rare to get me putting my running shoes on but a week in Paris with nothing better to do obliged me. I suffered for the rest of the week.
Grand Plan flèche and chamois
Time for the tots traditional fleche and chamois tests with the Barioz ski club in their micro ski area of the Grand Plan.
Col de Porte Training #5
The day was spent practicing hill climbing on the ramp near the Biathlon circuit as well as balance practice on the descents (skiing on one ski as far as possible).
Plateau d'Arselle on SloMo
A false good idea going to the Arselle after a super-hot February (one of the hottest since 1900). I actually had to skate all the way down the descent of the normally superfast Astragal.
Powder in March is pretty short lived, here today, gone tomorrow.
With the col de Marcieu closing its nordic ski area and le Sappey in poor condition the next nearest nordic ski area is the Beldina / les 7 Laux.
