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).
Col de Marcieu before the storm
The missus said a storm was blowing in at 13h00. Just time to go up to the Col de Marcieu and ski the Chemin de Herse over to St Hilaire.
Nordic St Hilaire
Practicing technique on the Chemin de l'Herse and Combe piste. Slopes in very good condition. Just the descent of the Combe black that is a bit hectic. Good afternoon's skating.
First and last at the Col de Marcieu
I've missed chances to ski the trail from the Col de Marcieu to St Hilaire this year. It is a really nice route.
Combe de Molière
Headed out with Mike to have a look at his super new MTB. The trail is pretty good in the damp as it is mostly sand which drains well. Some snow on the descent but generally good grip going down.
Skated over to the pistes of St Hilaire from the Col de Marcieu.
Out of the wind
With the high winds I didn't fancy touring today so decided on a the Chemin de l'Herse which I'd seen had been bashed overnight (it was covered in fresh snow yesterday).
Sunday afternoon St Hilaire Skate
Change of programme to skating on the Chemin de l'Herse. The ski resort of St Hilaire closed yesterday and even if it wasn't that busy it was even lonelier on the pistes today.
Nordic Skiing from the col de Marcieu
Mike and I decided to do a quick loop on the Chemin de l'Herse with our skating skids.
Tour of the Sanotorium
A short tour to test out my spiked winter mountain bike tires. After the source du Sanglier the snow was too deep to cycle.
