With the closure of the ski lifts this winter, CAF Gresivaudan has found activities to allow young people to discover the mountain in a different way. We are proud that SNOOC is part of this program. We let you discover their story.
Discovery and construction of the machine, some exercises on the toboggan run to learn to slide, turn, brake, ... fall and finally master a minimum of SNOOC before getting down to business.
We then go up the blue trail. It's steep and slippery, very quickly a movement of solidarity is established where the former lighten the latter with their SNOOC or even their backpack.
You end up on the green Chanterelle slope (groomed slope!) That you will go up to the squirrel ski lift (Pleynet side). A SNOOC tank build takes shape to the delight of those with energy to spare and there was!
We arrive at the picnic point at 1950m. around 12:45 (400m. of D + therefore). The weather is nice and warm, it changes us from the other youth adventure school outings we've been doing since the start of the season.
All in good shape, so we attack the descent and there it is the revelation: "yah, it's great, it's great, it's too cool, too stylish, etc.". The downhill sessions are linked, the whole small troop has a good time, we arouse the curiosity of snowshoers or other hikers who will come back down on foot ...
The small vehicle shuttle operation in the morning allows us to descend to Prapoutel (600m. Of D- for 400m. Of D +, that's always a pleasure!).
We arrive in a group at Prapoutel, after this long descent, everyone has made their mark, SNOOC has no secrets for anyone, we make a strong impression when we arrive in the crowd at the bottom of the resort!
Superb day, under the sun with an unexpected location of a groomed green slope of more than 5km, transformed snow and a closed resort!
