High Plains Skier
I was a bit tired after covering 90k on skis at l'Alpe d'Huez yesterday. Ok a third of that was probably on lifts but still.
Last classic ski of the season
I decided to go up to the Col de Porte as I was short of time to classic ski a bit and do some no pole exercises on the stadium area. A bit icy on the steep uphills but generally good.
Last SNC Training before the winter break
Our last club training before the 4 week winter break (for school holidays). We concentrated on Skate 2, getting weight over a flat ski and getting more glide with extension.
Grand Coin Nordic Ski Area - French Northern Alps
The Grand Coin nordic ski area is located north of the col du Chaussy (1533m) in the Maurienne valley near to the Col de la Madeleine.
Nocturne de Chartreuse Race
A relay race, at night, with Nicholas from work. The idea was to complete as many loops as possible in half an hour.
Vallorcine Nordic Ski Area
The Vallorcine cross country ski trails are located in a very picturesque, hilly and wooded site along the Eau Noire river.
Col de Porte SNC
Back home from BASI 2, quite tired but trying to keep the motivation up.
BASI Nordic Day 4 Vallorcine
Another day up at Vallorcine. We were joined by Fern Cates who was doing her technical evaluation for L3, clearly she was way above the level.
BASI Nordic Day 3 - Vallorcine
We decamped to Vallorcine for Day 3. The pistes offer lots of short climbs and descents to practise Skate one and diagonal stride. Cafe Moon.Tine sells great soups.
Half Marathon - first time without ankle brace
A longer tour at the Col de Porte (nowhere else in the Chartreuse has much open). I wanted to cruise around a bit further with the aim of doing a half marathon distance.
