Today I went out to
La Clusaz for a work-out that ended up being more fun than anticipated. I went in resort because nobody wanted to go out based on a sucky forecast. Well I got luck as the forecast was off enough and the snow wasen’t anywhere close to as bad as announced.
Some stats for
Number of lifts: 129
Tot. run length:
The best part of Aiguille du Calvert is that you get a fast and efficient
5,000 feet skin and drop and you can be home by about 1pm. Not too shabby…
Here are the pictures of the day (click to enlarge):
