La Thuile

Four more mid-term skiing days with James, in La Thuile this time, so that he could show me around the place he had his school trip last year. Excellent skiing on uncrowded pistes with no queues, even during our school holidays - well worth giving it a go.

Afternoon 1 and straight into things - James leads the way down the World Cup black
