Skiing the Couloir des Cosmiques
by jumpturn on Jan 18, 2010
Les Bossons, Rhône-Alpes, France
Back-country skiing | 5.4 miles
Skied the Cosmiques again in very nice pow in perfect weather. I caught the second tram, had a coffee to give the pro skiers some time to test the line for avalanches (by charging and banging turns). Then, I dropped the slope of the arret and head over to the col des cosmiques at a leisurely tempo. While I was down climbing the upper couloir, Remy Écluse, a local extreme skier of 36-years,...

Pic des Chalanches

Chalets de l'Alpe, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, France
Back-country skiing | 5.5 miles
Pic de Chalanches is a great early season tour when the conditions are right, and today they were right. Later on in the season the skiing can be as good, but the approach is much longer and harder as the road from Villard up to lac de l’Orceyrette will be blocked with snow adding some 800m of climbing and 9km of distance on.We got up there early this morning so that we...

Couloir des Cosmiques
by jumpturn on Jan 21, 2010
Les Bossons, Rhône-Alpes, France
Back-country skiing | 5.4 miles
We were planning to hit Courmayeur as the skiers cleared, but they cleared in a snap, and so, Morgan and I were compelled by pow fever to ski the Couloir des Cosmiques yet again. You can do worse than run laps on this 2777m descent, and today, it was DEEP with 40cm of fresh at the Aiguille de Midi, and more in the couloir. The pow kept on coming until the tunnel,...

Refuge du Nant du Beurre

La Léchère, Rhone-Alpes, France
Back-country skiing | 3.1 miles
Cette semaine, ce n’est pas le beau temps sur quasiment toute la région Rhône-Alpes, mais j’avais un « contrat » qui m’a amené à monter au Refuge du Nant du Beurre, tout en haut de la vallée de Grand Naves, donnant accès à de jolis sommets plutôt débonnaires mais qu’il convient d’aborder avec humilité, nombre de skieurs de randonnée ayant payer le prix fort dans des accidents d’avalanches dans ce secteur.

Pic du Jaillon - NE Couloir
by philingle on Feb 22, 2009
Arvieux, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, France
Back-country skiing | 3.6 miles
I saw a nice looking couloir on the pic du Jaillon last weekend when I was up at Arvieux skiing with Ollie. I had a look in the book and couldn’t find it so I managed to get Hubert interested in going and checking it out.The couloir I saw is the unmarked one. Working out how to get through the lower rock band was bit tricky and we ended up going up...

Back-country skiing | 3.6 miles
I can see this ski tour out of the kitchen window and my office window so it has been drawing me towards it for some time now. I had a go at it last year but the road was snowed in far down the valley and I didn’t allow myself enough time. Today the road was OK and I managed to get all the way up to the summer car park at...

Belledonne, Rhône-Alpes, France
Back-country skiing | 8.7 miles
Très belle ballade. Longue et un peu technique sous les lacs (Crozet et Domenon) -  couteaux et fourchettes.  Pas aimé passage au-dessus du Lac de Crozet avec de la neige dure, à la monteé. Descente : neige transformée du haut jusqu'en bas, dur dans le haut mais vite plus douce côtés est.Portage jusqu'à la sortie de la fôret (en bas de la pente N du Grand Colon).Avec Sergio.
