Bessans in Haute Maurienne, France (Monday)

Great afternoon for Sharon + me.
Not only was the depth on the trails more than sufficient (no hint of bare sports even at the lowest altitude), it was powdery winter snow (no hint of re-frozen), well-packed for any kind of skiing, classic or skating.

Nice big new building (and more parking) at the main base. Lots of people out having fun on the trails. Somehow it's always fun whenever I ski at Bessans.

It's a big open space in the midst of big mountains. Lots of gentle trails, that are still interesting enough. Skiing alongside the Arc river, and past various farm + shepherd buildings.

Up above 1700 meters altitude, seemed like normal winter again. : lat/long (N45.319806 E6.998205)
