How to use the ski touring guide

Description:

From the parking at the ski station at Ceillac you head SE towards the Cime du Meliezet and then the hamlet of La Riaille, this is done on a mix of piste, ski de fond tracks and cutting corners.  From La Riaille follow the torrent du col Albert eastwards into the vallon d’Albert, just before the height of 2445m you should be able to see the biggest most obvious couloir, head to it and climb,as it splits take the left fork and climb to the high point of 2718m

Descent:

Ski back down the couloir and turn left as it opens and continue to the trees, there are some nice little gullies to ski, these lead you back to the track on the torrent du col Albert and that leads you back to la Riaille, from there ski a mix of ski de fond tracks and piste back to the parking.
