Col Charvet. Ski tour with UniGe.

Friends from CERN

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.

Tête Pelouse. Ski tour with UniGe.


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… Read more »

Dômes de Miage. Ski tour with UniGe.

  On the weekend of April 8-10 we made the ski traverse of Dômes de Miage (3673 m) organized by UNIGE ski club, with Michel Piola and Christian Hug. It was a great outing, even though the weather on Saturday was quite nasty.

Pointe de Vouasson. Ski tour with UniGe.

On the top of Pointe de Vouasson

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 »

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.

Way to Col du Chardonnet

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 »
