First Col de Porte of 2023
First time at the Col de Porte this season. Just cruised around the pistes a couple of times. The climbs were quite hard, lack of fitness and steep hills.
Plateau du Retord / Les Plans d'Hotonnes, Jura, France
The Plateau de Retord ski resort is located in the village of les Plans d'Hotonnes. The 13 slopes, from green to red are adapted from beginner to more experienced skiers.
Plateau de Retord, Jura, France
Situated between 1000 and 1300 meters and with more than 150 km of marked routes for all nordic activies, the Retord Plateau is a paradise for Nordic skiing.
Mont d'Or Tour
A slight change in the programme with a long ride along the river to Albigny sur Saone then a climb on the main road to Poleymieux au Mont d'Or although the short cut via Curis au Mont d'Or was a bad
Mont Thou by the Route de Mont Thou
It might seem logical climbing Mt Thou via the eponymous road but it is around to the east side of the mountain so not totally convenient.
Inline along the Isere
Decided to inline today as it was easier to get the skates out. Legs a bit tired an achy at the start but ok on the return - must be the boots and position.
Slushy 7 Laux
Return to the 7 Laux. Today it was much warmer with a southerly, strong foehn wind that even stopped the chairlifts at times.
Icy 7 Laux
The conditions were considerably improved compared to our slushy ski tour from a couple of days before. The temperatures are negative, the snow canons were running.
Col du Coq in the fog
As there is little snow locally I decided to get the road bike out and go up the Col du Coq as far as I could before sunset.
Col de l'Oursiere
Short ski tour with tot to get some air not far from home. We climbed up on closed pistes / off piste and skied down on piste. Surprised at how few people were about.
