Alpine Skiing (51)
Les Arcs; Tarentaise, France
General DescriptionThe ski resort of Les Arcs is situated in the Tarentaise valley in the Savoie department in the French Northern Alps.
Return to l'Alpe d'Huez after 3 years due to Covid ! It has been a long time and we discovered the new Oule express lift from Allemont which is very practical.
West side story
Possibly the last weekend for the 7 Laux in view of the number of skiers - perhaps a couple of hundred in the whole area. It was only open on the west side.
Last weekend of full opening but not great skiing due to the cloud. There was no where you could ski without having to descend through the insane fog except Prapoutel village.
A short morning alpine ski, fairly relaxed trying some longer runs from top to bottom - 500 to 600 meters skiing as the lifts were running quickly and no-one was around.
7 Laux Smogski
Nice morning's ski on excellent, fast snow. Not too many people but a lot of bad skiers compared to earlier in the year. Off piste is scrapled but skiable where it is sunny.
St Hilaire du Touvet comeback tour
We didn't think St Hilaire, our nearest ski area, would reopen after a flood swept away one of the ski runs but they repaired things and it snowed a bit so things were go but really just for this week
Les Sybelles; Maurienne; French Alps
General DescriptionLes Sybelles in the French Maurienne links six villages: St Colomban des Villards, Les Bottières, La Toussuire, Saint-Jean-d’Arves, Saint-Sorlin-d’Arves and Le Corbier.
La Plagne, Tarentaise, French Alps
Resort DescriptionLa Plagne is known for its enormous ski area. 225km of pistes, which seems justified. 70% of the runs are over 2000 meters altitude, so it is snow sure, for sure.
Col de Marcieu Jus' like ol' times
Honestly it seems like yonks since we alpine skied here. The area is not that interesting but it was quiet and close to home for an hour... then an hour and a half's skiing.
