A short afterwork climb to the Oratory of the Charmant Som. I didn't have a good headlamp so didn't ski to the Bergeries but that might have been quite good as the snow out of the trees was not too bad. There is only about 10cm of snow on the whole road so not really enough for skiing with the expected rain and warm temperatures. Climb was relatively hard work - or rather good in places, not so good in others. Not having enough light to see might be an advantage in these conditions. 13 minutes to descen so not too shabby really.


Slush snow on the climb beginning to refreeze on the descent. First km was tricky.
