I wanted to explore a couple of dead end backroads that I always ride by plus it was a way to break up the climb.
Narbonne, Clémencières, Vence; Chartreuse, France
The Narbonne climb is a new one to me. Much nicer than the usual ride to the col de Clémencières. Not a car and pretty. The climb is 10% over 300 meters vertical which I managed with a VAM of 1000.
Les Arcs; Tarentaise, France
General DescriptionThe ski resort of Les Arcs is situated in the Tarentaise valley in the Savoie department in the French Northern Alps.
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.
Return to l'Alpe d'Huez after 3 years due to Covid ! It has been a long time and we discovered the new Oule express lift from Allemont which is very practical.
Grand Rocher crust skiing
Annual trip to the Grand Rocher mountain on cross country skis. The summit is reached via a series of 3 plateaux then a ridge line.
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.
West side story
Possibly the last weekend for the 7 Laux in view of the number of skiers - perhaps a couple of hundred in the whole area. It was only open on the west side.
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.
Last weekend of full opening but not great skiing due to the cloud. There was no where you could ski without having to descend through the insane fog except Prapoutel village.
