Val D'Isere

Just got back a couple of weeks ago from skiing in Val D'Isere.  It was fantastic and we had a lovely time with friends.  There was so much snow it was unbelievable.  Alex was in beginners ski class and he was skiing by the end of the week! He loved it too.  I got lots of photos just walking around.

A bit of sledging....he was dragged everywhere on this even on the roads there was so much snow!

By the end of the week Alex was turning, stopping, going up the drag lift and doing tricks!

There was so much snow plied on the roofs it looked dangerous!

It was a really pretty town and lots to do and see.  I enjoyed the walking around as much as the skiing!

Well looks like next year is booked!
