While Joan was in Switzerland, Jean-François went to Courchevel for the quasi-annual week of skiing with his old friends Peter Bethlenfalvy, Jean-Paul Gravier and François Darniaud.
The first couple of days were snowy and miserable:
but the next 3 days were gorgeous: sunny with a huge amount of wonderful snow. Here are a few memories.
Looking up toward the Combe de Saulire:
Avalanche danger: high! (This one was triggered on purpose, at night)
The restaurant at the top of La Saulire, above Courchevel
Looking back towards Courchevel
The Mont Blanc in the distance:
Another view of the Mont Blanc
Tracks in the fresh snow
Going over to the valley of Méribel:
At the top of Val Thorens
The picture of happiness!
Just having fun!
