So, you might´ve managed to read about our arrival to France in part 1, this is picture time. Those of you with mild ADHD might find this a bit easier to “read” (I supposedly have a mild form of ADHD myself, so I can make as many fucking jokes as I like about it, foo´!) There will be pictures of skiers in here, but they are rippers, and you suck if you don´t like it.
Some pictures from Monetier-Les-Bains, a sweet little resort, part of Serre Chevalier.
Finally, some shots from La Grave – no snowboarding shots of me, though, as this was a mixture of shit, ice, crud, fear, steep stuff and crevasses, and some pow in the middle (I wished I was on skis that day). My legs were toasted by the end of one ride (took about 45 minutes – 3500 something meters ASL – 1400m ASL.
Bottom line: La Grave is the gnarliest fucking place I´ve ever seen. There are literally shitloads of small resorts within shortish drives, and lots of microclimates going on. So if it´s really shitty in La Grave, take a bus or hire a car, and go somewhere else. I can wholeheartedly recommend staying at the Skier´s Lodge, and the owner is one cool cat. Go there, some day. You´ll be fucking stunned.
