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!

Chamonix (10 minutes) - Sight seeing and general

Vallee Blanc Story - "Technical difficulty = 4, Pucker factor = 8 to 9" and other anecdotes of the day!

Tuesday photos (15 minutes) - The day Janet Amacher and Jim Moore skied the VB

Friday Photos (8 minutes) - After the big snow we took the cable car to Aiguille du Midi without skis but with Joan, Anne, Ron, and Bruce.

Here a few links about the Vallee Blanche:
