Col Charvet. Ski tour with UniGe.

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 »

Но в последнюю неделю перед отъездом выяснилось, что в Испании будет холодно и дождливо. Ехать 10 часов на машине в холод и дождь… Read more »

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 »

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 »
