Skiing the Trois Vallées, January 2018

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.
