Catgory: Ski

Pointe de Vouasson. Ski tour with UniGe.

Всю пятницу я болела. Валялась в постели и отпивалась горячим чаем. Какой вы знаете лучший способ победить простуду? Я изобрела свой – пойти на 2 дня в горы с ночевкой. Мы отправились в регион Valais W – Pennine Alps W.

Col de la Fenêtre. Ski tour with UniGe.

Weather forecast was good – sun, no wind and -1C. But never believe to forecasts on 100%. We had hurricane wind,  beastly cold and no sun. Instate of doing the initial plans – the loop Col de la Fenêtre – Col de la Cicle, we have managed to do only  Col de la Fenêtre: Versant… Read more »

Les Pointes Longues. Ski tour with UniGe.

Today we were with our guide Yann (Yann Nussbaumer). And we did what was planned – Les Pointes Longues – 2709m. My first exit this year when we were not obliged to change our plans and when I was able to see something. We started at the Parking Vallon, la Lanche (Le Reposoir) – 1070 m…. Read more »

Petit Bargy. Ski tour with UniGe.

Ski touring season is open! In spite on the lack of snow we opened the ski touring season. We went with one of the “traditional” UniGe ski tours – Petit Bargy: Depuis Le Reposoir. Remarkable sunny day and a nice company with Dominique and Geneviève.

Pentecôte en rando-grimpe à Emosson (massif du Mont-Blanc)

The idea of this long week-end was to combine climbing and a ski-tour. In May the weather is warm and sunny, making it possible to climb on quite a high altitude. At the same time there were still enough snow to rich some nice climbing spots on ski.

Week end in bivouac l’Envers des Dorées. Ski tour with UniGe.

Day 1. Col du Chardonnet: Traversée Aiguille des Grands Montets >> Bivouac de l’Envers des Dorées In Argentières we took a lift to Grands Montets. And here I have got a first problem – my ARVA died. One week ago it worked and had 80% of charge. Today in Argentières it also was OK. But… Read more »

“Women only”. Tour du Jallouvre. Ski tour with UniGe.

In Russia 8th of March is a very nice and favourite holiday. This is a Women Day! For people it has nothing to do with politics. It is just the day when men congratulate women. All women, girlfriends, wives, mothers, sisters, colleagues. A lot of flowers, smiles and love… nice! So, how to celebrate the… Read more »

Col de l’Encrennaz. Ski tour with UniGe

Our initial idea was to take the lifts Flégère and l’Index from Chamonix, then traverse in the direction of Lac Blanc, climb Col de l’Encrennaz, and descent to Bérard valley. This is a classic ski tour Col de l’Encrenaz: Col des Montets >> Vallon de Bérard.

Pointe de Sur Cou. Ski tour with UniGe.

Today we went to Pointe de Sur Cou (1809 m) in the massif Bornes – Aravis. Actually it was a course for beginners organized by UniGe. I am not a beginner but since I did not have company it was a chance for me to go to the mountains. Moreover the course was guided by Michel… Read more »

Col d’Ubine-Pointe de Lachau. Ski tour with UniGe

Today we were with the guide Yann Nussbaumer. It was really awful at 6am in Geneva. Dark, rainy and cold. To add the final bit to the picture Yann backed our UniGE bus at the parking and bumped my car. Not a very good beginning. As the weather was bad our initial plans changed. Yann… Read more »
