Ski Touring (20)
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.
Aulp du Seuil, and why not?
The clocks have changed so it is difficult to find the right timing for a before work.
It's been a long time since I've skied from the summit of the Dent, 2015 was the last time I think but maybe I lost the appetite for NFZ (no fall zones) as the Americans call them.
Aulp du Seuil, first of the season
First aulp du Seuil of the ski season, better late than never. I'd hoped for more snow, the avalanche bulletin had mentioned 20cm of fresh, it was probably a quarter of that.
Aulp du Seuil avec Thibaut
Thibaut had suggested we ski the Couloir en Virgule.
Last Virgule but not least of 2019
This is almost certainly going to be my last Virgule Couloir of 2019. First off all getting up at 6am during the week is not my cuppa but the reward is seeing the sun rise over the Alps.
Powder in March is pretty short lived, here today, gone tomorrow.
Couloir en Virgule Anthologic
Trips like this only happen a few times per season. 20-25cm of fresh, cold snow with a descent just after dawn in perfect conditions.
Drôle de con on the Dent de Crolles
Parked at the Salt Depot and took the la Gorgette trail just after the bridge following a well made snowshoe track that came from St Pancrasse up to the winter carpark at 1220 meters.
