Ski Touring (8)
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.
Allevard Les Plagnes
A return to the excellent Allevard. Hotter this weekend but tot was motivated for the summit. We skied down via the red, a bit overcooked on the steep pitch but frozen ruts in the shade.
Allevard, top to bottom ski tour with tot
Final tour of the half term holidays with Tot. We started from Pre Rond and climbed to la Plagne, Quite warm. Descent via the face (rouge) which was tracked out then the pistes.
Le Grand Rocher
Tot was on snowshoes and me on skins. Amazing how many cars there were parked up, right back past the ski area so over 1km to reach the start of the trails.
Le Grand Collet
Climbed up from Prerond to the Grand Collet and skied down to the bottom of the ski area where we recovered the car. Club groups were training at the Pre Rond.
From the top of the ski lifts take La Combe red and as you exit onto the main piste immediately track north under some bushes to enter the woods via the GR walking trail.
Grand Rocher from the Barioz cross country ski area
Excellent choice at the start of the season due to the high road access and on days where the avalanche risk makes other routes dangerous.
Les Plagnes, Collet d'Allevard, Belledonne, France
From the parking at Super Collet follow the Ski Touring track to climb to the col de l'Occiput (1877 m) then follow the piste to the south-east just after a buttress follow the ridgeline to the summit
