Perfect Pelvoux!

By Sandra on 15 January 2016 · 2

The weather wasn't that good yesterday, with lots of snowfall again, so we decided to stay in the trees where we had good visibility. It turned out to be a good decision!

The sun came out in the Hautes-Alps today, so we decided to go to little resort of Pelvoux again. We met with friends Raphaël, François and Gérald at 9.00 AM and were ready for a great day! We weren't the only riders in the parking lot, but despite a lot of people carried fat skis and airbags around, there was no such thing as powder panic. Pelvoux would deliver to everybody today.

We decided to ride down just left of the left where the wind didn't have that much influence and it was obvious that there was so much snow... We didn't ride that steep today, always on the safe side, and it was SO. MUCH. FUN!

We moved to the south facing slopes later on to enjoy the sun. It's like Super Mario Land. Pillows all over the place. It was awesome!

    Beautiful. I passed by Pelvoux a number of times en route from Monetier to Puy St. Vincent and always wondered what it was like.
