Snow is melting


Wednesday 03 december at Lautaret Pass.
This is at the moment the only one snowkiting spot available here in France as the snow is melting a very lot up to 2.300m lately.
So sad that all the nice fresh powder snow disappears so quickly due to the warm weather and south wind blowing.
Another bad point, is that the french army is organizing trainings in our mountains and it's forbidden to go to the Galibier area which is the best at the moment and would be great this week as the S/E wind was blowing quite every day.
That's life.
We only have the right to keep kiting near the Pass and here the snow is really poor at the moment.
Anyway, the session was good today although the sky was covered and the snow really hard.
Let's expect for the next snowshower which is due to friday and saturday.
:-)


We can see below the army car checking out every kiter and touring-skier to forbid them all for trying to go to the Galibier mountains.

27 nov, Les Trois Evêchés, Lautaret.


Super session at the Lautaret Pass today.
We managed to reach "Les Trois Evêchés" as the South/East wind was blowing properly about 10-20 knots.
Super cloudy sky with huge dark clouds rolling all the day long.
Often complete flat light.
But sometimes, the wonderful sunbeams came for a couple of minutes and that was really incredible (but true).



Here, Wareck and Gauthier having a short rest.



Once at the top of the area, we found a real fresh powder snow and that was amazing, awsome, stunning, to go cruising around on such snowpack.
We stopped the session about 4 PM and met the rain while leaving back home with the car.

It seems that the super S/E wind conditions are here for a few days more.
So, don't hesitate to join the spot, dudes.
