WHITE KITE NEWS

On last november 1st, the ski resort "Les 2 Alpes" closed the glacier skilifts after one wonderful week for the autumn holidays here in France.
Here is the video about the last session.
It was on the southern area as the gentle south wind was blowing 5-10 knds.
I don't invite anybody to go snowkiting on the glaciers, it's really dangerous because of the crevasses and the risks are everywhere up-there.
This movie is to show some infos for a safe session.
Remember : never go kiting along the nice and steepy slopes on this glacier.
As written on the movie, going off slopes is not forbidden, event if the ski resorts don't like it, think that mountaineering, touring-ski, are allowed, then so is snowkiting :-)
The Northern area here on this glacier "Dome de la Lauze" is larger but we'll see it later.
In summertime and during the autumn week, the skipass here is about 25 euros.
Now, the resort is closed, so we have to wait for the real snowshowers here to go snowkiting again.
:-)
Cheers.

La station "Les 2 Alpes" a ouvert son glacier une semaine durant les dernières vacances de Toussaint.
Ce fut l'occasion de super sessions snowkite sur le "Dôme de la Lauze".
On est en secteur hors-piste, c'est déconseillé par la station mais pas interdit par la loi.
L'alpinisme, le ski de randonnée, sont légaux donc le snowkite aussi.
Le pratiquant doit avoir une bonne expérience et rester le plus prudent possible.
Le risque Zéro n'existe pas, tout comme lors du trajet en voiture pour se rendre à la station...
Voilà.
Vous savez maintenant comment rejoidre ce spot.
C'est en général durant le ski d'été ou la semaine d'automne qu'on y va.
Le secteur de kite par vent de Nord est plus vaste.
En été et à la Toussaint, le forfait est aux alentours de 25 euros.
Soyez prudents si vous envisagez une session dans ces hautes-montagnes.
:-)
Tschussss
