Being Silly on a Ski Trip in The French Alps

Being Silly on a Ski Trip in The French Alps

Some years ago I went skiing to Val d’Isère in the French Alps with one of my best friend’s family. It was a very fun trip.

Val d’Isère is in the Rhône-Alpes region in southeastern France. It lies 5 km (3 mi) from the border with Italy.

Before this trip, all of my skiing trips had taken place in North America (Colorado and BC); this trip was a bit different. The major difference was that I was able to take off my jacket on the mountain because it was warm! There is no way I could do that in Whistler.

The mountains were stunning, with views of blue and white for miles.

My Spanish friend, Carolina and I had a lot of fun together and enjoyed being silly on the mountain.

She’s a bit crazier than me.

Which one do you think is whiter, my smile or the snow?

Then we decided to remove our skis and slide down the hill, because why not?

The skiing boots give us a silly-looking walk.

We got some serious skiing done too.

And we chilled and had some food at the resting spot on the mountain.

See? No jacket.

Exhaustion laughter at the lockers after a full day of skiing.
