La Tete d Bostan Ski Randonee

We were out on our annual half term ski holiday and there was an opportunity to check out the Tete d Bostan away from the chaos of the slopes! We met up with Carl, Sian, Andy and Catherine for the tour. We drove up the Valle de la Manche until the snow stopped us going any further. The start of the tour was on a forest path and was quite easy going.

The narrowness of the path was making us think that it will be an interesting ski down! The path opened up to a bowl with a few chalets. The skiing started to get steeper and the way out of the bowl was clear to see.

The path wound it's way to the saddle with a view over the Col d Golez. The weather was mixed but made the scenery even more dramatic. We continued up along the ridge until the wind and cloud made it time to turn around.

The skins were soon put away and helmets put on for the ski down. The terrain was mixed with a few steep pitches and obstacles to avoid!

We stopped for lunch on the Col d Golez and enjoyed the ever changing view. It was then time to put the skis back on and head back to the car. The descent was varied and good fun. It was easy to see why this is a popular route with the locals, it was accessible quite safe and fun.
