Every weekday during winter, and occasionally the rest of the year.

Did you see the Tour de France trying to go through Val d’Isère yesterday? They definitely weren’t anticipating thunder, lightning and hail!

They couldn’t have cycled to Tignes:

Even if a mudslide hadn’t blocked the main road!

They probably weren’t too surprised, though. They last time the Tour came through Val (2007) the weather was kind, and the only problem was successive leaders’ being disqualified for doping, but the time before (1996) they cancelled the stage because of snow and went back down the hill by car. Just before the main road was swept away by a landslide!
