The big return of Luc from after his second paragliding accident. He seemed to climb pretty well given the pins in his ankle and his elderly Scarpa boots. Great conditions, buckets of snow. Fresh powder. We skied directly from the cables through the avalanche protection then down the trees straight onto the pistes.
