route_description

Beautiful place and easily accessible, hence the crowding. The forest route part is a bit boring (both directions) and there is a longer flat-uphill part on the way back, but everything above is worth it and the view is amazing.

weather and conditions


Perfect weather, sub-zero temperatures, blue sky, windy only at the top of the ridge.


The top of the col was quite icy and windblown, below - still 10-20cm of nice, light snow on top of the harder surface. The very last 20-30m it's worth to boot-pack as the touring track becomes really inefficient + being broken by the skiers going down.

Lower down the snow was mixed, greatly depending on the sun and wind exposure. Forest route perfectly fine. Snow until the very bottom.

Rather crowded - tons of ski tourers and snow shoers until Loriaz, afterwards only 1-2 teams. Col had ~10 tracks, below much more. Some tracks coming from the summit too.

timing

Slow paced:
10.00 start from the Parking
14.15: Col de Terrasse
15.00 back to the car
