Thib had warned me there was not much snow left but I had difficulty believing him as conditions had been good a few days ago.
Villard de Lans
Resort OverviewVillard des Lans is situated about 45 minutes by car from Grenoble on the Vercors plateau.
Trail of the Rising Sun
I'd not been back to Barioz for a while but had a half day off to enjoy the last of the summer in winter weather.
Monday St Hilaire
Tot was keen to do a morning at St Hilaire. The snow conditions are still really good and we tried to arrive in good time to ski for a couple of hours.
Chemin de l'Herse matinal
I'd wanted to do a return trip along the Herse early in the day (9am start) but the Herse had not been pisted from the Combe Noire junction (not enough snow depth and too hot apparently).
Spring on the Collet
It seemed like late spring today. 20C in the valley and a lot of smog, some of the worst valley pollution of the season.
The snow was reasonable good so decided to climb to Emeindras at the summit, or nearly, of the ski runs. Of course the descent was icy which meant it was not too reassuring on cross country skis.
St Hilaire Spring Skiing
A tour of the pistes and off pistes of the old "phantom village".
Crust skiing on the Sagnes marshes
A tour of the Sagnes marches which I'd not done for some time and Thibaut had never been here. Unfortunately the runs were only partially open.
Col de Marcieu
The col de Marcieu is a small family oriented ski resort located in the French Chartreuse mountains on the Petites Roches plateau between Grenoble and Chambery. There is a restaurant and ski hire.
