Alpine Skiing (31)
After a long morning x-country on Saturday we decided to have a cool 2 hours downhill skiing on Sunday.
Les 7 Laux
It had snowed about 20cm overnight, the pistes were a bit slow going, maybe a wax issue but generally in very good condition.
Les 7 Laux (Buggy GPS)
A morning whizzing around the pistes of the 7 Laux. Surprised by the lack of half term crowds. Only the Oursiere had queues of about 2-3 minutes.

Afternoons skiing at les 7 Laux. The parking was rammed and it was difficult to get through the parked cars, we were door handle to door handle in places.
