Feb 15 - Feb 25, 2002
A great NPSC trip! Much more than just classical (as the
French call a groomed run) skiing. We had ambiance, off-Piste skiing,
and Paris. The high point for me was the Vallee Blanche run.
See link to the story below.
Also, there was the town, the scenery, and Paris. I had a
new digital still/video camera so wound up taking almost 400 pictures. I
have tried to whittle down significantly and put them in some sort of
order. Links to these pages are below. Note the time to load over a
typical dialup is shown in parentheses - so be patient!
