Val d'Isère has opened today, from the top of the glacier, over to Tignes and right down to La Daille. Where we took our first photo of the new season. Which features a snowboarder. With facial hair and his shirt hanging out...
Still, he got good air off a little jump, and was followed by a skier who performed a... well, some sort of hot doggy thing.
Amazingly the skier, a lad called Marius from the Tignes Ski Club, landed his jump, not quite on our photographer's head, and paused long enough to remark that the snow was FANTASTIQUE!!
