We can't read Italian, so we skied right past this. :-)

It's not just the French that know great food. Mid-mountain family owned restaurant.

Another grand day at Courmayeur.

Great meals, mid-mountain Courmayeur.

This family-owned mid-mountain restaurant deserves special mention - La Chaumiere. Deer Valley can only dream of lunches this good.

Bumps and tree-skiing at it's best.

Beautiful town of Courmayeur. Right on the slopes!

Le Tour - just another Chamonix ski area - about the size of Vail!

That's a hamburger - the way it's served on the french/swiss border at Le Tour.

Le Tour - ski anywhere!

Got snow? Ski the roof of a house, end of March in the worst snow year Chamonix has ever had.

Leave the race skis at home.
