Ski Touring (266)
Traditional spring afterwork for when the clocks change. It was very windy, even at the col. I went all the way to the summit but could barely stand up and didn't hang around except for a quick photo.
Janvril AOC 2022
I haven't skied the Virgule couloir this year. An error but conditions have not been good with the long anti-cyclone and I've also been very busy.
Dent des Crolles
20 ski descent of the Dent de Crolles. The mountain is fantastic and fascinating. Accessible, 20 minutes from the valley. Iconic due to the way it guards the southern flanc off the Chartreuse chain.
Pas de la coche
Trip with Mike to the Pas de la Coche and beyond! The road is blocked at 1230 m but possible to drive around the barrier to the summer car park at 1330 meters.
Afternoon tour with Tot to the Canaple. We were looking for something safe (it was risk 3 > 1600m) and this fits the bill.
St Hilaire Top of the Pistes
Tot tested out his new touring skis with Fritschi touring bindings. All ok and much easier than last season's snowshoe touring. Very pleasant little ski tour. All quiet in the resort.
First ski tour of the winter
Due to my knee and ankle injury picked up riding on ice in mid November I'd not toured this season as it is quite painful when the snow is difficult.
Col Dulong de Rosnay by the col de la Combe
RouteFrom the col du Glandon (1922m) climb west to the Col de la Combe which is visible from the car park.
Tour of the Roche Noire
Zero portage, not bad for a 20th May at 1600 meters! I basically did a tour of the Roche Noire, a lot of km for not much vertical.
Der de der avec tot
Almost certainly the last ski tour for Tot this season. He climbed on boots to the summit on more or less solid snow.
