Slope Aspect: North

Trip Reports

Vertical Climbed: 400 meters (1,312 feet)


There was around 2-3cm of fresh snow on the trails. They had been pisted this morning but were pretty soft in places at noon. The descents were slow - I put up a series of "lanterne rouge" times on Strava but the flat and climbs skated well enough. Pretty tired after 2 hours and 3 loops: 2 of the blue and 1 of the red. Impressive snow coverage still, could be worth another tour if the conditions allow.

Weather: Low cloud, some sun, some drizzle.

Access: Clear

Country: France Area: Chartreuse Trailhead: Col De Porte
