Skiing in the French Alps

Last week I went skiing in "Les 3 Vallées"
That's me on the pistes just outside our chalet-hotel!

Snowy mountains and blue sky; big change of scenery for me (from London)

The sun was casting a lovely light on the relief and snow bumps

The view from one of the glacier

View from Roc de Fer

Across Les Ménuires (or was it Val Thorens?)

Again I love how the light played with the bumps

The wind sculpted the snow like a sand dune

With Simon!

Starting to be covered in snow
(because it snowed, not because I rolled into it)

Not so great visibility then...

A cheese fondue is the best to recover!
