Charmant Som pte 1722
A little summit on cross country skis / crust skiing before the lockdown. I skied to the top of the small peak in front of the Charmant Som. Good fun on the crust. Climb took 33:32, 2nd fastest time.
Aulp du Seuil avec Thibaut
Thibaut had suggested we ski the Couloir en Virgule.
After a long morning x-country on Saturday we decided to have a cool 2 hours downhill skiing on Sunday.
Le Desert d'Entremont
The Desert d'Entremonts has around 30km of cross country runs prepared for skating and classic (claimed 45km but a number of kms are double counted in this figure).
I'd originally wanted to ski to the Charmant Som and return but the piste was not prepared 1km after the col so I skied over the link (in good condition) to the main pistes and took the big loop aroun
First (only) le Sappey of 2020
Rumour had it that le Sappey was opening up. Well it seems to have been a bit of rumour that also caught out one of the piste workers as the area had not been pisted.
Lunch ski at the Col de Porte
Skiing was heavy going, snow was pisted this morning but by lunchtime it was like skiing fresh powder with skis sinking in 5cm as well as poles. The south loop was open and in good condition.
Charmant Som en Classic
36:36 for the climb compared to my record of 32:20 (for both skating and classic). Not bad at all and my 6th best time. I put it down to better technique as well as fitness.
Les 7 Laux
It had snowed about 20cm overnight, the pistes were a bit slow going, maybe a wax issue but generally in very good condition.
Spring skiing at the Col de Porte
I wanted to check out what the weekend's record temperatures had done to the slopes. Quite a lot of snow had gone from the upper red piste, it was skiable last Friday but now was just bare earth.
