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.
Last but not least
After the morning activity a farewell, then, to the Chamonix tracks with a last skate up to the top end and back.
Morning spent going around the start zone of the cross country tracks demonstrating skate and classic techniques, filming and getting feedback.
Chamonix Night Fever
I've never tried night ski de fonding before so decided to go out on the Chamonix night skate. I can thoroughly recommend it. There were a lot of people on the 3km "loipe" so you won't feel alone.
L1 Instructor Course Day 4: Classic AM and PM
Another dollar, another day. Some fairly intense activity, classic striding and weight transfer in the morning. Skating one/two technique in the afternoon with a half hour teaching session.
L1 Instructor Course: Classic AM and PM
Went out on classic skis after the course to try and polish off some of the rough edges. Quite a lot of work on technique and we also had to do some instructing.
L1 Instructor Training classic + skate
Things got a bit more serious with more exercises but still some skating around. I went out and did a tour of the red after "work".
L1 Instructor Training skate + classic
Day spent going up and down the pistes first on classic then on skate skis after a break for lunch.
Dent Blanc de Piz Bedina
For a change decided to ski tour and see how much snow had fallen on Friday. The Pic Blanche de Bedina is good value as the climb is pretty consistent from the start of the valley.
Plus ça change...
The ski area at the col was full of school groups so I decided to head up to the Charmant Som for the 8th or 9th time this season.
