Nice and sunny day in Alps with a good company. Even with such small quantity of snow we have managed to find a powder on descent. This this nice ski-tour the ski season was finished for me. Climbing season is coming!
Ski tour with UniGe and Dominique Roulin.
Morsulaz-Combe de Sosay-Col du Rasoir Col du Rasoir : Combe de Sosay depuis Morsulaz
It was snowing during the week, thus we expected to have some fresh powder. We traversed Aiguilles Rouges (massif of the Mount Blanc, Chamonix) by the route Col de Bérard : Traversée Brévent >> Col de Bérard – beautiful “hidden” and wild side of Aiguilles Rouges.
Pointe des Carmélites is a peak in Massive Aravis just next to Pointe Percée. We did the route Pointes de la Carmélite : Depuis le Reposoir.
After passing the small village Chartreuse du Reposoir, we entered the wild valley of Petit Foron. We took the northern slopes leading to this summit of Pointe des Carmélites . The last 30m we did without ski – easy rocks.
Initially the plan was to go to Petit Bargy, but then we arrived we discovered that were was no snow at the start. The next variant was Col de Montarquis. We continued in the direction to Col de la Colombière trying to find some snow. There was avalanches traces everywhere and again no snow. Finally we did Col de Balafrasse (or Col du Midi) from Reposoir. Actually it was even better than our first plan – Bargy. More interesting route. On the descend the snow was not bad at all – typical soft spring snow, one that I like.
Today we ski-toured to the Col Charvet (2380 m), the Col between Mont Charvet and Mont Chombas. The best description that I’ve found in net is this – Col des Chombas, but it is not exactly what we did.
Nice ski-tour with UniGe to Tête Pelouse par la Combe de Grand Crêt. Finally we have snow. I have broken my ribs 2 days ago, but I could not miss this ski-tour. It was not so bad while we ascending, but getting a bit painful on the skiing down. Nevertheless it did not spoil a fantastic run down and a nice day. La Combe de Grand Crêt is a very popular route and it was skiing a lot. However, we have managed to find an untouched snow.
Maurienne is a provinces of Savoy. The Maurienne valley is one of the great transverse valleys of the Alps also known as an interesting ice climbing region. We stayed in the residence at Orelle because we did not find any other options with reasonable prices. It is better to stay close to Bessans – you will safe a time.
