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.
Etoile de Saisies 21k
Final compet. of the season. Basically a tour of the black piste (Justine Braisaz) at les Saisies.
I've been testing myself on this climb and thought I might be able to go under 29 minutes but it was not to be, 4 seconds of my fastest time : 29m14s.
Chamrousse in the morning
Difficult xc skiing at the moment, it is either too hard or too soft and there is a lack of snow below 1400 meters. I'd skied Chamrousse at the start of November, nearly 5 months ago.
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.
